What Are You Magnifying?

“What you magnify, you get more of.”

-Steven Furtick

Wow. I heard this today and it really made me think. What am I magnifying in my life? What am I putting my focus on?

Am I spending more time magnifying what’s wrong instead of what’s right? Am I looking at things the right way? What has my focus? Am I seeing God’s blessings or ignoring them? Is my focus on Him or me?

What you magnify, you get more of. Couldn’t agree more with that. Time to take a closer look and see what that is for me. Perhaps you, too?

Have a great day.

Proper Perspective

“We all need to take a big step back, reflect, and ask ourselves this one question: ‘Why don’t we put this same amount of effort into making the world a better place by donating our time, talents and/or money?’ Turn all this negativity into something positive and be the change you want to see in the world, instead of the alternative.”
-Rachel Buckner

Amen.

The author is spot-on with her assessment of what needs to happen next, after so much name-calling and finger pointing that has happened these past several months, and is still continuing today.

Channel your feelings into something positive, friends.

Have a great day!

Fix Your Focus

‘Quit focusing on what you’ve done wrong. God has already rolled away your shame, embarrassment, failures, and setbacks.’
-Joel Osteen

Wow, I needed to hear this today. So glad it was out there. This really spoke to me…my focus needs some fixing. Maybe someone else needs to hear this too.

Have a good day.

The Power to Revoke

‘If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your estimate of it…and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.’
-Marcus Aurelius

Facebook decided to give me the Timeline feature the other day. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t thrilled about it at first. But, it’s turned out to be a good thing because I’ve had the opportunity to look back at years’ worth of status updates while updating my page. Enjoying the trip back in time.

Meanwhile I found the above quote from a few years ago and thought I’d share it here today.

What external stressors do you need to revoke right now? What are you looking at in a negative way?

You have the power to make the choice to erase that pain and replace it with positive thoughts and gratitude for the good things in your life.

So what are you waiting for? Change your perspective and watch your joy increase.

Have a great day.
