This is posted as a Thought for us to Ponder. On a day to day consideration or in a wider life circumstance……stuff happens! How do we react or how should we react? How can we choose to react?
I certainly have not learned the lesson properly yet. When you have a signpost – you have a chance to prepare.. But, life is not always signposted. The day you had planned. just a normal day blown to pieces by intrusions, breakdowns of technology and more important family matters etc. Gentle direction changes throw me as much as the major.
I have learned to STOP! (Personally I breathe and pray) BUT when you first find you are foiled and prevented from doing the ONE thing you thought you would do when you got out of bed…………It takes a lot of choosing to prevent frustration from ruling.
I read the following quote when I was in such a swirl yesterday. (I could not access the internet – no major deal at all I certainly had to do ‘something else’) and indeed did a whole lot of other things. This simple quote I share to encourage.
In life the only treasures which you carry……..are the treasures which you carry in your heart. Demophilus.
We must guard our hearts against ‘irritations’. We must choose LOVE over hostility and unrestrained agro.
Forced to change direction today? May we all choose to bring encouragement even on the new unplanned pathway.
Be LIGHT in someone’s darkness.
