Put Yourself in the Picture


2 Tim 3v16 (NKJ) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

What we read and what we believe needs to be put into action.

I am sure everyone has had to assemble a piece of furniture. If you have not had this pleasure, I would caution you to go to Dan’s tool box and pull out the ‘patient tool’ to be ready for this task.

To assemble the furniture you must read the instructions available and follow it step by step. If we do not do this, the outcome can be a different looking piece of furniture. Maybe even with a piece missing or left over….it just doesn’t come out right.

This also applies when it comes to God’s Word. God does not give us His Word for us to think ”Oh that’s nice”.

It is life changing and inspirational. It uplifts, corrects and shows us the way in which we are to live.

I encourage you to plug into a devotional, either online or a book to read every day. I love to read a proverb a day.

I have a picture up on the wall that I gave Dan for a present. I love this picture of a country scene in autumn. The words in the picture are from Robert H. Schuller. It says…
Today’s Impossibilities are Tomorrow’s Miracles.

I love that. So positive! This picture has a glass frame. When I read the words I saw my reflection in the glass. I felt God whisper to me “Put yourself in the picture”.

I was feeling down and these words lifted me up and when I ‘put myself in that picture’, I knew tomorrow would be a better day. This was for me. No matter what I felt was impossible today, tomorrow would hold the miracle.

How do I know this? Because God is my Father. He is healing me. He is taking me through a process that makes me whole. He blesses me and is with me.

We talk about the ‘self talk’. How do you talk to yourself? Do you beat yourself up because you made a mistake or do you go…I will try harder next time and get up and get moving again.

In Dan’s Course, Session One on taking responsibility, Dan says “We cannot change our life for the better, if we do not understand the one we are experiencing now.”

So true. We learn from our past but we do not let it overtake our today. We teach participants to journal. If we start to write down what we are going through and how we deal with a situation, we can correct it.

Let us renew our mind by choosing to be positive instead of negative.
Let us look for the miracle of today and tomorrow.
Let us plug into Gods word and get instruction.

2 Cortinthians 5v17 (NKJ) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
