You can complain because roses have thorns or you can rejoice because thorns have roses. ~Ziggy~
There is always a choice to be made in how we view any situation. The life that we experience is largely a matter of which perspective we determine to embrace. Choose to always look for the positive, and that which is to be gained from each experience, and you will begin to see the world as a beautiful place.
Thought for the day
Are we continuing to be “drama queens” always complaining about our lot or are we seeking to find the goodness in people and the opportunities for growth in situations?
I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys. As the lily among thorns, so is my love… ~Song of Solomon 2:1,2~
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Rejoice in the Lord always [delight, gladden yourselves in Him]; again I say, Rejoice! Let all men know and perceive and recognize your unselfishness (your considerateness, your forbearing spirit. The Lord is near [He is coming soon]. Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God. And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-7 (Amp.)~
