Half Full or Half Empty

Scripture Reference: “For to him that is joined to all living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion” Ecclesiastes 9:4

Those who can see God’s hand in everything can leave everything in God’s hand. Joseph had a positive mental attitude. He laughed to forget. Considering the heavyweight of his challenges, I saw a side of Joseph that is worth emulating. He viewed the half-filled cup of water as “half full”. The pessimist says, it is half empty, but from Joseph’s point of view, with a little more volume, the cup will soon be full. We must view life this way to be a success. How do you evaluate your challenges? Do you consider them as ‘half full or half empty’? I’m awed by the attitude of Joseph in prison. He could have been whining and soliloquizing in prison. He could have put blame on many things; he could have questioned the validity of covenant faithfulness. After all, he fled fornication to please God. But Joseph looked through the spectacles of ‘processes. The prison was not the destination; it was just a bus stop and to get to the destination, you have to be up.

Genesis 40: 7 (AMP) says, “So he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were in custody with him in his master’s house, why do you look so dejected and sad today?” This is incredible; he could notice other people’s problems. His challenges never weighed him down. He was not self-centered, he still cared about others. He asked why they looked dejected and sad. Joseph couldn’t give what he didn’t have. It is obvious he was not looking depressed, dejected or even disappointed. This attitude leads to the palace. I challenge, you today, maybe you are even in that situation because you were faithful to God; it is proof you are heading to the palace. Go through it with a positive mental attitude; prison to palace. How do you view your circumstance; half-full or half-empty?

Daily digest: The optimist laughs to forget, the pessimist forgets to laugh       – JOHN MASON

Prayer: Lord, I repent of all murmuring and casting of my fingers. I see through this challenge, a crown of glory. Give me the grace to give to others in time of famine for therein is my bumper harvest. Thank you so much, in Jesus’ precious name, Amen.
