YOU HAVE TO DIG...

LET US STUDY ATTITUDE APPROACH...

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

Some fodder comes from Bruce Ball. I take a shovel to church with me...

TEXT:

Psalm 103:2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:

I. MY FRIEND, WE HAVE TO DIG, AND SOMETIMES DIG AGAIN.

LET US CONSIDER OUR OUT-LOOK? WHAT IS YOUR ATTITUDE TO FOUNDATIONS?

A. ATTITUDE TOWARD SPIRITUAL AND MENTAL HEALTH.

B. Llittle things matter... LOOK AT A DAY IN 1871... YOU WILL SEE...

In 1871 we find a infamous day in history... it is an accumulation OF MANY SMALL ISSUES...

One little lady lived in Chicago in 1871.

That little lady had one little BARN, and there was one little COW in her little barn.

The little lady when out before day break a little OIL LAMP because it was still dark.

The little lady noticed as she walked to the barn that there was A LITTLE WIND blowing that

morning.

The little lady's little COW knocked over the little OIL LAMP and the LITTLE FIRE from the lamp

caught a LITTLE HAY ON FIRE. The next thing you know the LITTLE BARN was totally involved.

The LITTLE WIND blew the LITTLE FIRE NEXT DOOR, and the next little house was involved...

BEFORE THAT DAY WAS OVER CHICAGO HAD WAS IS KNOWN AS THE GREAT FIRE.

Much of Chicago was destroyed...

An area 1 mile wide, and 3 miles long was consumed...

LITTLE THINGS CAN ADD UP TO LARGE DESTRUCTION...

Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken

him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

[25] And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;

and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

[26] And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto

a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:

[27] And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house;

and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

B. What does my OUT-LOOK LOOK LIKE?

1. Looking back will impede all progress? (Ask Lot's wife?)

2. Looking down you can not see Jesus? ( Ask the two on the Emmaus Road?)

3. Looking at the BIG PROBLEMS will depress? (Ask Peter, he saw waves, felt the wind?)

4. JESUS OUT-LOOK SAYS: LIFT UP YOUR HEAD...

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for

your redemption draweth nigh.

II. WHAT IS YOUR ATTITUDE OF APPROACH... YOUR ATTITUDE WILL DETERMINE

YOUR ALTITUDE... IT IS ALL ABOUT DIGGING...

A. What do we mean attitude of approach? YOUR PREPARATION CAN HAVE DEEP

AFFECTS ON YOUR ATTITUDE OF APPROACH...

There is a dark alley and you must walk down the alley...

1. You are a weak old lady that can't see very well in darkness is walking down

the dark alley.

2. You are a black belt in karate police officer and you have two pistols, a stun gun,

and a shot gun in the trunk of your patrol car. You have been trained 2 years at police

academy, you have 5 years experience in dark alleys...

Will these 2 individual have a different attitude approach as they walk down the alley?

B. LET US DISCUSS AGAIN THE ROLE OF ATTIITUDE...

Life is not success only journey... real life is not just a sunny day...

C. We pray to God for strength but we have resources we must use...

Ever hear someone say: I want you to pray I find a job? They sit by the phone all day, never

put in an application?

D. WE MUST HOLD OUR HEAD UP IN DARK TIMES...

PREPARATION... I have a choice, I developed a plan...

I made a plan during the calm of how to be prepared during the storm....

III. THIS WILL BE A WONDER DAY... WE ARE HABITUAL CREATURES...

A. We have filters to our ATTITUDE APPROACH...

This is often based on the emotions... by our senses...

B. Look at eye witnesses to a crime, there will be 10 different stories if there are 10 witness,

they all look through the own EMTION FILTERS.

KJV

Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

NIV

Psalm 55:22 Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall.

C. A young woman woke up early one day, she was so excited.

She said: THIS WILL BE A WONDERFUL DAY.

She looked in the mirror to discover she ONLY HAD THREE HAIR ON HER HEAD.
