IF ONLY.....IF ONLY....IF ONLY!
If only's look to the past and grumbles. This brings anger to the heart.
If only I had gone to college. If only I had a different husband, If only I had a better job, If only I was prettier, slimmer, taller, smarter, more talented....etc. etc.
In her book "Calm my Anxious Heart" she tells a story that really bring light to is way of thinking.
THIS IS WHAT I KNOW!!
When things come into our lives, we don't know if its a blessing for a curse.
A man had a beautiful and valuable horse. One night it was stolen. All the village said it was a curse.. the old man said "This is what I know, the horse was stolen, whether it's a curse or a blessing I don't know."
A few weeks later the horse showed up at the old mans home with 6 wild horse behind him. Now the man has 7 horses, and the village people all said this was a blessing. The old man said "This is what I know, the horse was gone now he's back with 6 others, whether it's a curse or a blessing I don't know."
This story goes on and on and each time something happened in his life he repeats "This is what I know."
Why do we always draw conclusions? No one is wise enough to know if it's a blessing or a curse. ONLY God know!!
REMEMBER: The Key is ACCEPTANCE. I am in this circumstance
- By God's appointment
- In His keeping
- Under His training
- For His time.
Have a great Sunday
