Being Encouraged

As I was reading my devotion this morning
which is found in Psalm 40: 11-12 I was reminded how TRUTH is so very important in all aspects of my life.  I had awakened from a dream where there was frustration and anger and I just didn’t understand it.  I found myself asking “why am I always so frustrated with ABC?”  “why am I so critical of ABC?”  and then I realized what I need to do is change my ATTITUDE, not expect ABC to change ~ they don’t see they need to change…it is me who needs to change.  
Change my attitude, my thought process and most of all take MY stuff to Jesus and ask for his help in dealing with ABC.  And as I read further into my devotion I was reminded the key to changing my attitude is to change my way of thinking, instead of finding fault with ABC I need to recognize the good things, be thankful for the good things ~ and yes, I may struggle to find the good things but I know deep down they are there.

When I was first began to look for a picture for Psalm 40:11-12 
the picture below was the first to pop up
and the tears began to flow.
August 8 is so full of memories and as the week continues, 
memories of joy, fear, love, sadness will envelope me
