…because everything is Vital.

The Art of Reframing

Opportunities often look like impossible obstacles

Be grateful for the bad things. Because the bad things helped prepare us for the good things.

Instead of asking God to get us out of difficult circumstances, start asking Him WHAT He wants us to get out of those difficult circumstances.

Prayer is least about changing our circumstances and more about changing our perspective.

Worship is forgetting about what’s wrong with you and remembering what’s right with God.

God wants us to learn to see bad experiences through the good we have gained from them.

God is in the business of recycling our pain and using it for someone else’ s gain.

I have experienced and noticed that the people God uses most often are the people who have experienced the most adversity. Adversity can produce an increased capacity to serve God.

A study by Alfred Adler found numerous examples of other people who eventually became successful in the area of their greatest weakness. Adler believed that birth defects, poverty, illness, and negative circumstances often prove to be the springboard to success.


The circumstances one complains about become the very chains that imprison you. Worship is the way out.

Name an area in your life right away where complaining can be replaced by worship.
