DAY 8 GRATITUDE. . .Expect the unexpected if you dare
Sunday, November 25, 2012
I have a screen-saver on my phone that is actually pretty cool. It says when God closes one door He opens a window. I've been meditating on this thought for a while and wondering to myself, how can I know for sure that the open window before me is from God? I'm at a point in my life where I can choose a variety of options....but which one would be the right direction? And which ones are from God? I've discovered the answer to this question, which I'll share later on in this post.
The unexpectedness of everyday life just goes to show you that at any point in your life, life has a way of throwing curve balls that can change your expected outcome. "This is not how I envisioned things to be" will be your daily mantra, if you can't come in terms with the fact that this life is a vapor. A very short poof of time when compared to all eternity.
It's really important to prepare for the unepected. . . .whether it's unexpected guests, unexpected endings or beginnings, unexpected weight loss or gain.... of course we all like the positive outcome of unexpected things because our life is enhanced and we feel encouraged.
By the way. . .how to know which window God is opening? Well that would be the one where the Son is allowed to shine through.
Today I am thankful for being able to bask in the Sunshine of God's love
