When things don't go your way

What do you do when things don't go your way? Do you pout, stomp your feet and complain? I do to a certain extent.

Once I cool down I try to mentally spin my situation around to make it positive. Remember when Jonah and the whale? Jonah was swallowed by a whale and spent 3 days and 3 nights in it's belly.

I don't know about you, but I'd certainly feel down about my luck if I found myself in the belly of a whale. The fact remains however that God could have easily let Jonah drown far out at sea.

Instead, the whale eventually spits him out at shore, thus saving his life!

What negative situation in your life can you make positive? I hear from many people who have lost jobs only to admit months later that it was the best thing that could have happened to them.

Turn your negative into a positive. Live each day in the present instead of the past. When you do, you'll find there is much more to life than what fits into your neat little plans.
