HERE ARE SEVEN “UPS” GUARANTEED TO LIFT UP YOUR DAY
1. WAKE UP!!
Decide to have a good day.
“Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” Psalms 118:24
2. DRESS UP!!
The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.
I Samuel 16:7 “The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart”
3. SHUT UP!!
Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.
Proverbs 13:3 “He who guards his lips guards his soul.”
Proverbs 20:19 “Gossip betrays confidence. Avoid men who talk too much”
Proverbs 19:20 “Listen to advice, accept instruction, and in the end, you will be wise”
4. STAND UP!!
For what you believe in. Stand for something or you will fall for anything.
Galatians 6:9-10 “Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have the opportunity, let us do good…”
5. LOOK UP!!
Colossians 3:2 “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
6. REACH UP!!
For something higher.
Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.”
7. LIFT UP!!
Philippians 4:6 “Do not worry about anything; instead, pray about everything.”
A POSITIVE THOUGHT
If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it. If God had a wallet, your photo would be in it. God sends you flowers every spring, and a sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk, He’ll listen. God could live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart. What about the Christmas gift He sent you in Bethlehem? Not to mention that Friday at Calvary. Face it, He’s crazy about you!
In His love,
