One day a fisherman was lying on a beautiful beach, with his fishing pole propped up in the sand and his solitary line cast out into the sparkling blue surf. He was enjoying the warmth of the afternoon sun and the prospect of catching a fish.
May you know true contentment today
It’s Monday, the beginning of a new work week for me. Most days even when the weather is getting me down I can deal with bad situations by trying to look at the bright side of things, because if not, I would just be a grumpy soul traveling the streets in anger.
I think we need to take life for all it's worth because as sad as it is we are not promised tomorrow today. I try to have the kind of spirit, the kind of character that allows me to thrive in the face of adversity
This is tied directly to my faith and the knowledge that God loves us and is at work in our lives. We all have a choice as to how we approach things. We live in a day and age especially in this area, where people desperately need to be able to hope. Statistics show that 3000 jobs have been lost in our area.
I do have a reason to fix my focus on the bright side of things and be hopeful, because I know how much God loves. I know of Gods power to accomplish His unfailing plans and purposes. . We can look at the security found in Gods promises to us, not at the insecurities of our times
Happiness doesn’t come from being rich, or merely from being successful in your career, nor by self-indulgence. Like the fisherman in the story today, take time today to enjoy life.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Where there is life, there is hope
