“Pick Me Ups” From A Friend

My friend Regina sends me lots of inspirational, cute, and funny emails each week. I just found one of the inspirational ones that I had missed which has 7 “pick me ups.” I figure everyone needs to be reminded of these from time to time, so here you go:

 

7 – Ups!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wake Up!

 

Decide to have a good day.

“Today is the day the Lord hath made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

Psalms 118:24

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Dress Up!

 

The best way to dress up is to put on a smile. A smile is

an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

“The Lord does not look at the things man looks at.

Man looks at outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart.”

1 Samuel 16:7
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Shut Up!

 

Say nice things and learn to listen.

God gave us two ears and one mouth so He must have

meant for us to do twice as much listening as talking.

“He who guards his lips guards his soul.” Proverbs 13:3

“Gossip betrays confidence; avoid men who talk too much.” Proverbs 20:19

“Listen to advice, accept instruction and in the end, you will be wise.”

Proverbs 19:20

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stand Up!

 

Stand up for what you believe in. As the saying goes,

stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.

“Let us not be weary in doing good; for at the proper time,

we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good . . .”

Galatians 6:9-10

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Look Up!

 

Look up to the Lord.

“I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”

Philippians 4:13

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Reach Up!

 

Reach up for something higher.

Always try to better today than you were yesterday.

“And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye

when you have a log in your own?”
Matthew 7:3

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lift Up!

 

Lift up your prayers.

“Do not worry about anything; instead pray about everything.”

Philippians 4:6

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

Hope these “7-Ups”

 

 

lift your day!

“When you bow down before the Lord and admit your dependence on Him,

He will lift you up and make your life significant!”
James 4:10
