Dear Friends,
The world we live in and daily circumstances can many times contribute to us having a bad attitude. However, a good attitude can be the ingredient to change things around and see issues from a different perspective. A good attitude is crucial to our success in life in general. I was having a hard time with a situation where I felt there was no more grace to go on but then I realized that by changing my attitude God gave me the extra grace I needed to continue. Today, I would like to share one of the devotionals from my book Devotions for Working Women that reminds us how important it is to have a good and positive attitude. Enjoy!

Have a Good Attitude
# 269

Philippians 2:5 (NLT)
Your attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had.

Always having a good attitude in life is crucial to success, yet it is not always easy. We live in the world, and we will face tribulation and problems while we are here. We are not to ignore them, but we are not to let them rule and take over our lives either. We take control, confront the situations, and fight the good fight of faith. When we know that God is with us to guide us, comfort us, and give us peace, we should then gain the attitude of a conqueror. Jesus was humble and obedient to God. He also trusted God and believed Him.

Philippians 4:4 (NLT) says to “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!”

Verse 6 tells us, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” These scriptures help us keep a good attitude.
