I know Facebook has a reputation for a lot of shenanigans, but I actually find quite a bit of inspiration when I venture to sign on. There are many spiritually uplifting posts from my Facebook friends as well as groups that seek to uplift, encourage and generally instill hope in someone who may need it.
The post I saw recently was titled, “Instead of looking for the good in your day, look for God in your day. You just may see things differently.”
Right away, I began to think of everything in my day that could have gone wrong … but for God. Yes. What a revelation. By merely positioning my thinking this way, I began to see all of the things I know would not have happened if it weren’t for my God and his love for me — his unequivocal, unconditional and continuous love for … me. The thought that I’m loved no matter my shortcomings, no matter my imperfections, no matter my flaws, no matter that extra 10, okay 20 pounds I’m carrying around, brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart.
To think, I keep wishing for my soul mate to magically come into my life that will accept me as I am while helping me move towards where I want to be when he’s been with me all along makes me weep with joy, pure joy. Taking a deep, reassured breath knowing that he will never abandon me, he will never forsake me and he’s already made the ultimate sacrifice that I might have the opportunity to live this beautiful life makes me catch my breath! I can’t believe how I’ve taken him for granted, but I’m going to seek to ensure that each day, he knows, I am grateful for his love. I’m forever grateful for his continued forgiveness and tolerance of my flaws and I’m going to work that much harder to make sure his sacrifice is not in vain.
