Life can teach us incredible lessons if we are open to receive them. Sometimes we find that things around us are out of order. Perhaps your steps were set in a particular direction and suddenly, you look up and realize that you have no control and must just go with the flow. This my friends is an opportunity to exercise patience, understanding and trust.
In totality it's the serenity prayer playing out in our lives.
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things that I cannot change, the courage to change that in which I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
The difference being; knowing, and accepting that we have, no power to change certain things...
This is when we are forced to trust, and have faith, or we can simply decide to have faith. I tell you that the latter is also greater.
I have a saying that is also the theme of one of my business' and it is becoming the theme of my life. "Attitude is Everything!"
Many years ago a negative circumstance landed me in many positive situations. During this time, I was exposed to lessons, introduced to resources, and positioned to experience things never imagined.
Today it is evident that collectively each one had been preparing me for this particular time and place in my life.
We are human and in being so, it must rain on each of us.
Rain is a vital nutrient for growth. Few things "raise up" in the desert. Yet, the sun is always there although, it may duck behind a cloud now and then... "A. Najai D'Raughn"
We can trust that the sun will shine again but while waiting, seek the opportunity to enjoy the rain's supply. It is sufficient to quench our thirst as the sun is sufficient to dry our tears and keep us warm.
