Mid-week thoughts to ponder.
Oh! Look there’s a big storm coming. My whole day will be ruined. My life’s a MESS.
This day is going to be a really bad one. I think I should go back to bed! I fell over the cat, I burnt the toast. My hair’s a mess, I look fat and flabby, everything’s a mess. It’s never going to get any better!!
Am I alone or have all of you had days like this?
How I used to handle these kind of days and how I am now learning to handle them are vastly different.
I believe what you say MATTERS. This day is a write-off or Wow! what a dreadful start! I believe by the afternoon there is Hope for peace and restoration. I CHOOSE not to let this ‘agro’ go with me to affect others. I CHOOSE ……..KINDNESS and LOVE.
Someone, I think it was Augustine, said……..I see a big storm coming, I will take all precautions to guard my life but my faith assures me that this too will pass and I will believe for better ahead.
For all of us this day and for the rest of this coming week I pray that all storms, whether they be natural or spiritual, or even simply the ‘normal’ hassles of ordinary life will open the doorway of Hope to a place of Peace and inner tranquility even if the ‘outer’ still surges.
Blessings and Grace over ALL THINGS.
