Each morning, I have a time of quiet… that time before anyone else gets up… a time that is just mine… a time where I can think about the future and what it holds.
We’ve been looking into the possibility of staying here, in our home state, even after this campground closes for the season!
However, as I’ve been looking at homes for sale, I find I am astounded by the prices! Even the cost of a small apartment is outrageous! My mind is reeling, thinking we will never be able to afford this!
During my morning quiet times, I have been reading the book, The Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. I have come to realize that I can be a very negative person.
I’m one of those people who sees the glass have empty… instead of half full!
I can look at a home that has been beautifully designed and find that one piece of wall paper that has a wrinkle in it!
I always seem to be able to find the flaws… I always seem to look at the negative…
Yet, I am told that positive minds produce positive lives… whereas negative minds produce negative lives.
Who wants to have a negative life?!? I certainly don’t!
It’s in the negativity, I find that I am afraid to hope for that big traditional homestead. I’ve been working part-time at this campground and the prospects of a job in the fall looks dismal!
But ever since we decided to live life on the road, God has always provided a job for the next season! Sometimes, it just seems to come at the last minute, which is frustrating for a negative minded person!
Matthew 8:13 tells us that ‘it will be done for us as we have believed.’
Does this mean I can get anything I want just by thinking about it? No! But God has a perfect plan for our lives, and I can practice thinking positively about my life and what the future holds!
Instead of thinking I won’t get a job for the new season… or we’ll never be able to afford that homestead… I can think that God has always provided a job, and a new place to go to in the past, and He will continue to do so!
Even though the prospects are looking a little discouraging right now, I can expect God to bring good out of it!
Until next time, think positive thoughts!
