Within change, can come good and hard times of life. The Bible speaks learning to trust in God in all times. Seasons will come and go. Prayers will get answered and yet we wait on other prayers to be answered.
I have seen in life when people share happy moments, others questions why things aren't happening for them. The answer to that question in my heart is this, you haven't seen where that person has been in life. You don't know all their choices and hard times. You see the smile and pictures that show it. You don't see the sorrow that came before the happy moment happen. I've watched this over and over in lives.
Seasons change us over time. I can look back at my own life and can't believe where I am now in a positive way and also a negative way. Things I had wished we had done different and yet so happy at all the things we did right. Just a fine mixture of change and learning to live in new normals and excited about other things.
Philippians 4:11-13 New International Version
11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
SAY THIS ~ I CAN DO ALL THINGS
Speaking positive things to yourself is very important. Seeing yourself stronger than yesterday is important too. Calling up courage, wisdom, knowledge and all good things. I love living in America and living freedom of mind. God has given open doors and surrounds us with people who care about us. Our choices affects each of us and others. I will never know what my example means to lives and you might not either. It goes further than we can image.
I volunteer in my Granddaughter (Brookley) first grade class. As I listen to the teacher, I heard such calm voice and treated the kids so great. It wasn't my experience as a child. I remember being laughed at and teased so much. I never liked going to school or being involved in many things. Keeping my little life separate and feeling so alone. I heard Brookley's new teacher tell them this, "do your best" and it brought back so many things to be. Doing our best is important over many things. There may not be any right or wrong way, just do your best.
DO YOUR BEST ~
Is my thought today for you (the reader)
We face different things and we must continue to do our best. I like being kind to others but I don't always get that kindness back. Let us live the word of God, share thoughts of hope and love like God loves us. It's my thought today and I value your time, your prayers and support. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Remember ~ YOU ARE IMPORTANT!
