I DEMAND MY WAY, I WANT WHAT I WANT...

VS. MAKE TODAY COUNT...

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

WORDS CAN NEVER CONVEY THE POWER OF YOUR ATTITUDES AND WORDS

IN YOUR DAILY LIFE. THE MOST IMPORTANT DECISION YOU MAKE MIGHT

HAVE TO BE ABOUT YOUR CHOICE OF ATTITUDES YOU WILL MAKE...

The times had been hard and dark. The people had been crying a lot.

The Preacher calls the people around him and warns them:

QUIT CRYING --- CELEBRATE LIFE --- GIVE AND FIND JOY...

Nehemiah 8:10 Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and

send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord:

neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

Facts and circumstances are cold and hard. You might not be able to change the

whole world but YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR ATTITUDES AND WORDS.

You can BOUNCE with your attitudes or you can be angry and allow your attitudes

to handicap you.

CAN WE UNDERSTAND CLEARLY WE CAN SUPPRESS AND OVERCOME BAD

ATTITUDES OR WE CAN CAVE IN AND LIVE IN GLOOM, DESPAIR AND AGONY

ON END...

We had a friend that demanded her way all her childhood.

Her mom and dad did whatever she demanded.

She controlled her parents by pouting and temper fits.

She stayed up all night and refused to go to bed.

She refused to get up and go to school, the parents got in trouble.

As a teenager she would pitch a fit and they would buckle under her orders.

They did not SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE of the monster they were creating.

She turned 16 and found her first job at WENDY'S, a hamburger joint.

Her job was simple, clean the tables off when people left and pick up anything

laying around.

Her first day at work some of her friends came in and she stood over one hour

talking and laughing with her friends.

HER BOSS CAME OVER TO HER AND TOLD HER THERE WERE MANY

TABLES THAT NEEDED ATTENTION.

The young teenager threw down her rags and spray bottle and screamed at the

boss: WHO ARE YOU? WHAT RIGHT DO YOU HAVE TO TELL ME WHAT TO DO?

She was FIRED on the spot.

This was but the beginning of A TERRIBLE JOURNEY OF LOST JOBS AND IT IS

ALWAYS THE OTHER PERSONS FAULT.

As an adult she got an apartment, she was EVICTED IN A SHORT TIME.

The neighbors were idiots?

She found a young fellow with much the same attitudes of entitlement and

YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO... the whole world is mean.

Today she is has been married several times and has several kids, by several men.

The social services have taken the kids several times, and suggested

ANGER MANGEMENT CLASS... Who are they to tell her what to do?

CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES HAVE TAKEN THE CHILDREN AND SHE IS

LOOKING FOR A FREE LAWYER TO GET HER KIDS BACK. SHE CAN NOT

DRAW A CHECK OR GET FREE RENT WITHOUT THE KIDS.

DOES THE BIBLE TEACH US ABOUT AN ATTITUDE IN GETTING UP?

I SUPPLY THE FUEL THAT STARTS THE ENGINE... DO I GIVE HOPE OR DOES

MY ATTITUDES TRAP ME IN A CYCLE OF ALLOWING THE CIRCUMSTANCES

TO DEFINE MY THOUGHT PROCESS...

WHAT DO I TEACH MY FAMILY? MY FRIENDS?

WHAT DO YOU TEACH YOUR KIDS ABOUT MONDAY MORNINGS?

SURE, WE TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO GET UP IN THE MORNING ---
