THOUGHT’S FOOD

This page is for articles that add “food” for our thoughts and knowledge.

$20.00

Sometimes we just need to be

reminded!

A well-known speaker

started off his seminar by:

holding up a $20.00

bill. In the room of 200, he asked,
“Who would like this

$20 bill?”

Hands started going up.

He said, “I am going to give this

$20 to one of you

but first, let me

do this.

He

proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.

He then asked, “Who

still wants it?”

Still the hands

were up in the air.

Well, he

replied, “What if I do this?”

And he

dropped it on the ground

and started

to grind it into the floor with his shoe.

He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.

“Now, who still wants it?”

Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a

very valuable lesson.

No matter what

I did to the money, you still wanted it

because it did not decrease in value.

It was still worth $20.

Many times in our lives,

we are dropped, crumpled, and ground

into the dirt

by the decisions we

make and

the circumstances that come

our way.

We feel as though we are

worthless.

But no matter what has

happened or

what will happen, you

will never lose your value.

Dirty or

clean, crumpled or finely creased,

you are still

priceless to those who DO LOVE you.

The worth of our

lives comes not in what we do or who we know,

but by WHO WE ARE and

WHOSE WE ARE.

You are

special

Don’t EVER forget it.

CHRISTIAN WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS

Angel says, “Never borrow from the future. If
you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it
doesn’t happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it
does happen, you have to worry twice.”

1. Pray.
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4. Say No to projects that won’t fit into your time
schedule, or that will compromise your mental health.
5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two is
often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects
over time; don’t lump the hard things all together.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concern. If a situation is a concern,
find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety.
If you can’t do anything about a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget; don’t use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key
buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent
an enormous amount of trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
17. Get enough rest.
18. Eat right.
19. Get organized so everything has its place.
20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.
22. Every day, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems
in the bud. Don’t wait until it’s time to go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.
25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a
good “Thank you Jesus.”
27. Laugh.
28. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but yourself not at all.
30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
32. Sit on your ego.
33. Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.
36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you’re grateful for that you’ve
never been grateful for before.

GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND FOR YOU.
