12 Sep

It’s early Friday morning, and already, I feel tired. The long days have taken their toll on me; I can’t wait for the weekend to come. But wait! I just remembered, this weekend, I still have things to do- errands to run and a million other chores to finish. Just thinking about them makes me feel down.

But this always happens, and I mean, always. When I am down in the dumps, something always comes my way to lift my spirits up and remind me that I live not for the million chores of life, but for Someone else.

And then I let myself start to breathe normally again. One breath in, one breath out, and so on, and so forth, until I am no longer frazzled or harried. And I remember TGIF- and I don’t mean “Thank God It’s Friday,” but “Thank God It’s Forever.”

Because indeed it is. HIS love is forever.


To:             YOU
Date:          TODAY
From:         GOD
Subject:      YOURSELF
Reference:  LIFE

This is God.  Today I will be handling All of your problems for you.  I do Not need your help.  So, have a nice day.

I love you. 

P.S.  And, remember…
If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do Not attempt to resolve it yourself!  Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME.  All situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it.  Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now.

If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don’t despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

Should you have a bad day at work; think of the man who has been out of work for years.

Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; think of the person who has never known what it’s like to love and be loved in return.

Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.

Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance; think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.

Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity.

Should you find yourself the victim of other people’s bitterness, ignorance, smallness or insecurities; remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!

Should you decide to send this to a friend; Thank you. You may have touched their life in ways you will never know! Now, you have a nice day.




Gratitude puts everything in perspective.
