Fill your mind with the thought that God is there. And once your mind is truly filled with that thought, when you experience difficulties it will be as easy as breathing for you to remember, "My heavenly Father knows all about this!" This will be no effort at all, but will be a natural thing for you when difficulties and uncertainties arise. (Oswald Chambers)
I remember in the movie, "It's a Wonderful Life," George Bailey (played by Jimmy Stewart) was overwhelmed by his problems and failures until an angel showed him the truth about his existence. That revelation completely changed George Bailey's perception of things. He laughed with delight at his problems and faced the fact that he was probably going to jail with a merry cry of happiness.
The people watching his strange reactions thought that he had lost his mind. Of course, the audience knows that George Bailey had never behaved more reasonably in his entire life than when he laughed at his problems. George had discovered that little things like losing his reputation and going to jail, when compared to the great underlying realities of his life, were harmless trivialities.
I have experienced a transformation of attitude similar to George Bailey's. God is here with me; His power and love are filling my heart and my mind with joy and mirth. Compared to the truth of His presence, all the other things that might come along — like losing my health, or job, or marbles — are trivial. It's a wonderful life no matter what happens!
Heavenly Father, thanks for the reassurance that You are with me through any of the problems of life — and for letting my mind be truly transformed by that thought.
