EEM's thought for the day ....

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.'

When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.

'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.'

I feel like this is something I need to read a couple times throughout most days. It is amazing how instead of focusing on the next amazing thing that might happen in my future, I focus on the pain of whatever has been taken away. I waste so much time thinking about the past, my mistakes, others who did me wrong, and why I am where I think I need to be in life. I know i should be grateful to wake up each morning, happy that i am healthy, overjoyed that I have a great family and friends, and all in all just thankful that my life is pretty good.

God does not punish by taking away things ..... he does free you up for the nest thing in your life. I am reading "Loving Yourself" right now and am amazed at how the writer seems to put things into words that MOVE me so much. ok, well that's my post for today. Just something i wanted to jot down.

Great post, Thank you for that, I think the same way you do so I guess I will have to start changing the way I think. I hope all is well.
