September remember! Hope you're having a great month and this post meets you in good spirits:) Happy Birthday to all the birthday people...two of my friends celebrate today...seems lotsa ppl were born in this month!
What a month it has been so far! Hmmm where do I start?
I'm not going to go ranting on about my issues but in fact, will cut to the moral of the story right away. Sometimes things happen in your life for you to realize how great you really have it. I read somewhere recently and mentioned it to a friend who had similar thoughts that: if everyone were to throw their problems into a stack...when you saw everyone else's you would want yours back...so true. Sometimes you think you have worries, but the truth is, someone is always going through something worse than you. Just saying....what you may think is a problem - is a needle in a haystack, when considered in the grande scheme of things.
When things are too comfortable, sometimes you need a little jolt to give you a wake up call, so that you can see how fantastic your life is indeed. When you start to experience more discomfort, you would thank God for your small mercies and simple luxuries. We as human beings are really ungrateful creatures at times. Not to discount what we may be feeling, which may be very real, but our situation is only relative. Relative to someone else or relative compared to our journey thus far.
Time alone can do wonders for us. Can you remember yourself 5 years ago or even 1 year ago? What was life like? How does it compare to now? My! How life has changed! Can you picture yourself 5 years from now or 1 year from now? What do you see? Do you think what is happening now will matter much? It may all serve to shape the person you would become, but the problems you face now, may matter little when compared to what's in store for your life in the future. We never know what life may bring; that's why we must live in the moment and savour every last drop because when it's over, you don't want to have any regrets or try to recapture what's gone.
We develop coping skills along the way and that's how we grow. That's how God tests our faith and that's how we build character...by showing the world what we're made of. And no matter how many times we fall, we will not crumble because God gives us strength to overcome anything. Once we have the will to succeed, no one or nothing can stand in our way. "I can do all things through God who strengthens me." [Philippians 4:13].
I KNOW I can, but do you BELIEVE that you can?
True words: "The power of life and death is in the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit." [Proverbs 19:21].
