This was my devotional today and it is just what I needed to hear. First and foremost, I thank God for His unconditional love, for the forgiveness of sins and for never giving up on me! I experienced an emotional moment as I began my work day. I was overcome with feelings of chaos, at the time I could not really put words together to describe what I was experiencing. After, reaching out to a friend and seeking prayer I was able to recognize my issue. I am not in control of the universe!! For a moment I felt like I was caught in a cartoon from my youth, “Pinky and the Brain!” LOL. You see, I share an office with 10 other people and today was my Monday, add 108 new emails to the mix and somehow, I gave myself the authority to be controlling over a situation I was not even present for, shame on me! After feeling quite foolish, I apologized for my quick temper and judgments, I work with a great group of individuals who have helped me see the errors of my ways more than once. I have no excuses to offer, only thanks for the opportunity to improve. Lesson learned, breathe…allow myself to breathe in God’s goodness and to exhale the stress and sadness. I am truly blessed with God’s amazing love and two very dear friends that care enough to be truthful with me while supporting me at the same time.
~Blessings and Peace~
“Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.” ~Anonymous
Living an extraordinary life truly is a choice. You and I CAN choose how to react, we CAN choose our attitude, and we CAN choose that positive attitude that sparks incredible results. The question is “Do we BELIEVE we can?” Our Creator has given us the will to choose. How exciting to know such possibilities are before us. Choose the best for yourself and others. Treat your challenges tomorrow with a positive frame of mind and watch the possibilities begin.
