How can I make a difference in a broken world?

Stained Glass Cross


The Psalmist calls us to praise God, to "bless the Lord" for such is the ultimate purpose of humankind. In order to praise God we must remember all of his benefits. The psalmist goes on to number many and invites us to do the same.

I read an article by a Psychologist today which claimed that studies show that human beings' thoughts are 80% negative and only 20% positive. This severely limits what we can accomplish and certainly dampens our mood if not leads us into depression!

The antidote for that negative thinking is to reflect on the positive, remember the blessings. Bing Crosby was no prophet but he had a point when he sang "Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch on to the affirmative and don't mess with Mr. In-between'!!


"The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?"
