40 Day Miracle – Surrender NEGATIVE ATTITUDES

Posted by rise2it on May 31, 2012

You know it’s the right thing to share when you pray about it and then God shows you through different types of media that He agrees.  As I was thinking about my next surrender NEGATIVE ATTITUDES last night and praying about it this morning, I was given full agreement when I read my daily reading at YouVersion.com.

The following helps to define the Causes, Consequences and Cure for negative attitudes found at Personal Development Coach:

CAUSES:

  • limiting beliefs
  • negative family/friends
  • negative environment
  • unsatisfying circumstances/life

CONSEQUENCES:

  • shortened life
  • unpleasant future
  • it harms others
  • produces negative effects

CURE:

  • understand the outcome of negativity
  • find the positive aspect instead
  • understand what the cause is
  • causes are internal rather than external

TYPES OF NEGATIVE ATTITUDE:

  • miserable
  • silent killer
  • drama queen
  • woe is me
  • paranoid
  • trigger

Ask God and others for help to overcome negative attitudes. James 5:16 is a great reminder, “Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The earnest prayer has great power and produces wonderful results.”

40 Day Miracle – Surrender EXPECTATIONS

Posted by rise2it on May 30, 2012

I know I need to lower my expectations because some of them cause me stress and stress causes unwanted sin such as pride, gluttony and anger.  I think it is ok to want the best for you, your family, your friends, your co-workers, etc. It’s when the pressure to perform is unrealistic, that is when it becomes a problem or you expect others to be at the same level as you and their not (they may never be).

“We see things we want to see, and we don’t always see the things we should.  Because our expectations are so high, when [someone] doesn’t live up to them we can’t hide our disappointment.  It comes out in moodiness, discontent, disrespect, disdain, critical words, and the ever-popular silent treatment.” taken from The Power of a PRAYING WIFE Devotional by Stormie Omartian.

Stormie’s response to dealing with expectations is to release them into God’s hands so the person can become who God made them to be and not what I want them to be.

So how do you lower your expectations?

40 Day Miracle – Surrender CONTROL

Posted by rise2it on May 29, 2012

What I’ve learned over the past 7 days has shown me that there are many areas of my life that I like to control such as:

  • our finances
  • my husband
  • my children
  • my time
  • my job
  • my mind
  • the car

and those are just a few thing that pop into my head.  I’ve learned over the years that I think I have control but I don’t because God is in control of everything and when I get too involved He gently reminds me.  I may not always recognize it right away because I am too caught up in my own world.  It is when things get hard that I open my eyes and realize what God is trying to say.

Here are two sites that address CONTROL:

What do you want to control?
