GENERATIONAL NEGATIVES (GN) PART III Trust вЂњWAS BORNвЂќ
I read the headlines in the news early morning and I found myself beginning to sing the Christmas Blues. Why donвЂ™t you just sing a few news bars along with me:
вЂњThe Twelve Days of ChristmasвЂќ
How does one sing this song in вЂ?05
Estimated price of ’12 Days of Christmas’ gift list up sharply due to gas and gold prices and the bird flu.
‘Christmas’ missing from Bushes’ card
Quote from Psalm 28 but not Merry; so not good enough
вЂњ10 Reasons to drink over the HolidaysвЂќ
My in-laws andвЂ¦вЂ¦..
Now, I thought why donвЂ™t I try changing my tune to some things that my Mother (a generational positive) taught me and have kept me focused over many years.
Chant along with meвЂ¦.
вЂњI am the light of the world, He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, But have the light of life (John 8:12 NKJV)
LIGHT WAS BORN
вЂњThe Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.
(Psalm 145:18 NKJV)
GOD WAS BORN
вЂњThey shall obtain joy and gladness and sorrow and sighing shall flee awayвЂќ
ISAIAH 35:10 (NKJV)
HOPE WAS BORN
вЂњBlessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the LordвЂќ (Jeremiah 17:17 NKJV)
TRUST WAS BORN
вЂњвЂ¦Happy are the people whose God is the Lord! вЂќ(Psalm 144:15 NKJV)
HAPPINESS WAS BORN
вЂњBlessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, who alone works wondersвЂќ (Psalm 72:18 NASB)
WONDER WAS BORN
вЂњSalvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.вЂќ (Acts 4:12 NIV)
SALVATION WAS BORN
вЂњGlory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward menвЂќ (Luke 2:14 NKJV)
PEACE WAS BORN
вЂњWhen they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. (Matthew 2:10 NKJV)
JOY WAS BORN
God, Light, Hope, Happiness, Salvation, Wonder, Peace, Trust and Joy were all starting to fill my heart to overflowing. I realized I knew the One that I wanted to make up my world. Yet at times others would squeeze in my thoughts and take up my time.
If you are struggling with GN try using my formula,
Part I See Part I of GN -Passivity вЂ“вЂњTake Up Your Bed and WalkвЂќ
Part II See Part II of GN -Obedience вЂ“вЂњLet Your Light ShineвЂќ
Using the words of C. Wright Mills from Part II GN
вЂњOften you get the best insights by considering extremesвЂ”by thinking of the opposite of that which you are directly concerned.вЂќ
Part III-Trust-The One that makes up your world!!!!
OK here we go!!!!!
High gas prices, no Merry Christmas from White House, canвЂ™t find the latest game. My ______________have all become outlaws!!!!!
Why do I allow all the negatives to occupy my time? GN Red Hot-anger followed by the GN Christmas Blues-sad and mad is my kind of guy.
Ask yourself, just who does make up my world? Are they trustworthy and do they warrant me exchanging my Light, Hope, Salvation, Happiness, Wonder and Peace for red hot anger and the Christmas blues?
Do you know anyone more interesting, more inspiriting, more loving, caring and helpful and always available than the One that has the ability to be and give to you Light, Hope, Salvation, Happiness, Wonder, Peace, Trust and Joy?
Let us trade in the generational negatives (GN) for generational positives (GP) and have ourselves a very Merry Christmas! Jesus is the reason for our generational positives (GP).
