Ask yourself good questions

Andy Andrews was one of the speakers during the pre-conference on Friday and on Friday night. Now I had never heard of him, but I am a big fan now. Although he was a little hyper on the stage. LOL.

Now I've heard versions of this before and it just makes sense. But it's one of those things that I always think, okay yeah that sounds great.Then I don't follow through with it.

Anyway, one of his points was that we need to ask ourselves good questions. What does this mean?

Well, instead of asking myself something like "Why am I so fat or why can't I control my eating?", I should ask myself something like "How can I improve my energy level?"

So this has me thinking about different areas of my life:

Instead of "Why can't we get ahead or why can't we get out of debt?". How about "What can we do to improve our financial situation?".

Instead of "Why isn't my daycare full?", I could ask myself: "What can I do to get the word out?".

Obviously, I'm not very good at this yet. But another thing I try to keep in mind when I"m getting frustrated at things like this is that God does know what HE is doing. I can't tell you how many times I've looked back on a situation and realized that God's hand was there all along. So that helps me through a lot of things.

Next, we'll talk about our dreams (not sleepy-time dreams but life dreams)

Sounds like something I needed to hear! I do ask myself the wrong questions all the time.
