Is your glass half empty or half full?

Someone who sees the glass as half empty is called a pessimistic and an optimistic as one who sees it half full.

I would like to challenge us to see the glass neither full nor empty, and to fill the rest of the space with God. We are His ambassadors and we must seek His Will and not ours.

A truth that is hard to grasp, even for my son who loves baseball and is playing at a Division I college. I encouraged him to ask God for directions for his life. My son's response, as sincere as he could be was, "I'm not going to do what I don't like." 

To that I replied, "God gives us desires (baseball), but the test is what are we going to do with them?  Are we going to ask God to show us His directions, do it our way, or walk over others to get there."

We may still see the glass as half empty or half full, but let's put on spiritual glasses to look for His Will.
