Inspite Of Everything, This Is Still A Wonderful Life



We are what we think we are. We are the sum product of the totality of all our thoughts. If we think positive and good thoughts, then we are living in a veritable paradise. But if we focus on all the faults of men including our own in this world, then we are living in a hellish world inhabited by negative people who keep on pulling themselves down to their own quagmire of defeats and frustrations. One way to make our world a wonderful one is to focus on what is right with us and others and not what is wrong. In other words, we should always count our blessings. If we focus on all the good things God has done for us since we were born including all our answered prayers, then we will realize that we have a perfect and loving Father who have provided us with all the beautiful and sensible things in life. Remember, God looks at things from a vastly superior point of view and will not mind making us suffer a little if we will be able to accomplish an improvement in character that is far more effective in carrying out His divine purpose in our lives. God knows exactly what He wants from us and will not stop until He accomplishes His purpose for our lives. So we suffer untold miseries and pains every time we move on the opposite direction of what He really wants from us. Until we finally learn that our very purpose for life is to please Him and give glory to His name. In spite of everything that is happening to this world, it is still a wonderful life that we are living.

hi Mel, there's a saying, "garbage in, garbage out." another saying, "you are what you eat." that applies spiritually and not just what we eat naturally. you summed it up when you said our very purpose for life is to please God and give glory to His name. we don't understand all that happens, but God is aware of everything that happens. we trust Him, even though we might not understand. He'll never leave us nor forsake us. He's with us always, even to the ends of the earth. have a good weekend!

Your words are so true. The Lord made such a beautiful masterpiece of a world so that we might find peace and beauty and joy amidst our trials, in this "school" called life. Your words remind me of the last line of one of my favorite writings of all time, "Desiderata", which ends this way: "With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world." You can read the whole thing at one of my blogs:

Bless you always Mel. You are a spirit of light and truth! Thanks for not hiding your light under a bushel!

Hi Shiela,
Thanks for the beautiful words but as always, TO GOD BE THE GLORY. Yes we all put our lights where everybody can see them and praise our heavenly Father in heaven. That is our ministry- to point the way to God's grace of salvation and deliverance. Please pray for sis Emmyrose. She is suffering again from attacks of lupus and herpes and has just been recently operated on her thigh. Her spiritual reserves right now is very low and she needs all prayers from kindhearted souls. Thanks for your visit and inspiring comments. God bless you always.
