Having a positive attitude can overcome so many of our daily disturbances. Someone once said to me, “Try to find the good in all things, no matter how they look now. Later when you think about them you will find something good that derived from them.”
Well, believe me, there were times I just could not find anything good. But you know there is never just a black or white side of things. We need to look deep into the situation and try to understand the reasons these things happen. What brought them about? And as soon as we begin to understand the “other side of the coin” we can see why those events took place.
Don’t misunderstand me, they are to be dealt with – don’t just say, “OK, I know why.” and let it go. We need to use the wisdom given to us by God. As it says in the bible, “If you have not wisdom, then ask and it will be given to you.”
We all have things that happen, and ask, “What was that all about?” and forget it or let it hang onto us for awhile. Well, if it hangs onto you, maybe it’s there for you to look into and understand. Who knows, maybe it will reflect on your own life and ways, and instead of just understanding the problem, it will put light on some area in your own life. You may not be able to change the circumstances that happened, but maybe you can use it to change an area of misunderstanding in your own life.
I have gone through many tough spots only to look back now and realize the changes they made in me. And I must say they were for the good.
Open your eyes, your mind, and your heart to understanding, and you will be blessed that you did.
