And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
1 Peter 5:10
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.
Phil 2:5
What do these two verses have to do with one another? Lately I've allowed my circumstances to greatly affect my attitude. The challenges have been hard; the days have been long; the path is rocky. But isn't that the test? Isn't that the test of my growth, my faith? I've been failing the test…but NO MORE! I want my attitude to be a sweet fragrance, not an awful stench…starting now!
Lord, even when my circumstances are sour, let my attitude be sweet!
