You know the saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." In reality it is all about your focus.  What do you choose to fixate on will make all the difference in the world.

I could chose to focus on my problems...

the abuses I have suffered

the lack of funds when I want to buy something

the gift I never got

that testy person who bugs me

the day that didn't go my way.

Or I could choose to focus on God and what He has provided for me...

Members of my family that protected me

Our needs and wants being provided for

The gifts I receive daily from God

That testy person who is refining me to be more Christlike

The day that God will use in my life to bring Him glory.

So where is your focus?

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
