SOS — Stay Out of Strife!
When you have a bad attitude, it tends to get into everything in your life. We eat, sleep, and breathe the bad feelings we carry about a person, a situation, or the conditions we are facing. Before long we have told every man and his dog about how bad it all is. Everyone around us knows about what is going on and how unhappy we are.
The problem with this is that we start magnifying the problem and lose hope and vision for our future. We need to start speaking the Word of God to our problems. Start saying what we want and not what we currently have. Stopping the strife and changing our attitude about the situation will allow God to work on our behalf.
Strife gets out of hand, and before you know it, it is everywhere. Strife stops God from working in our lives. God can only work in an atmosphere of peace, faith and love.
Taking our minds off the situation and placing our thoughts on Him, allows peace will come.
So, remember SOS means stay out of strife. Strive to keep your heart at peace and let the negative stuff just wash over you. Do not be touchy and sensitive. People can say things that you should only ignore. It is not worth all the trouble it causes you.
