Flick the Switch

One of the most powerful tools I know in relationships is one I was reminded of today when one of my adult children utilized it again.  

It is the power of "flicking the switch."  

Flick a light switch in a dark room and INSTANTLY light floods the room!  Flick it again: darkness instantly.  Powerful.

You have that power inside of you to turn an attitude around.  It is SO MUCH POWER that we often refuse to acknowledge we have it, or maybe sometimes we don't even believe we have it! But we DO.  When you start to see something in your attitude or actions that you don't want to be part of your character:  STOP and flick the switch and turn it around INSTANTLY.

When you don't think you can do it, ask for the Lord's help.  Turn your wrong attitudes around instantly.  You will be incredulous at the power the Lord has put within you.  You will waste fewer hours with wrong attitudes, and spend more joyous times with people you love when you exercise this power.  

Challenge:  The next time you see a wrong attitude surfacing, flick the switch and turn it around.  The more you do it, the easier it is!  Enjoy salvaging all those moments you would've wasted and turning them around into joyful memories!
