One of Those Days

Opps-Oh No

Opps-Oh No

Have you ever had “ONE OF THOSE DAYS” when everything seems to go wrong?  Perhaps the alarm didn’t chime (at least so you could hear it); there was no milk in the fridge for cereal; you spilled on your favorite shirt; you ran out of gas in your car; or you couldn’t find your cell phone. A wise teacher said, “Remember that Heavenly Father is more powerful than Satan, so don’t let Satan get you down.” Any of the above experiences might lead to Satan dragging us down.  When this happens to me I feel discouraged. But discouragement doesn’t come from the Lord. To change my attitude, I seek direction from the scriptures or the words of living prophets contained in Church magazines (Ensign or Liahona). “Scripture power keeps me safe from sin. Scripture power is the power to win. Scripture power! Every day I need the power that I get each time I read” (LDS Primary Hymnbook). Words from this song are intended to direct young people, but I also find them uplifting.  When discouraged, I apply a good dose of scriptures, and am lifted with spiritual refreshment.  Myopic view of problems flips to the bigger picture of what I can become and what the Lord wants me to accomplish here on earth.  It is a simple formula that works for me.
