Erroneous Weather Prediction

Before retiring last night, my husband and I discussed the weather forecast for today.  It was predicted to be cloudy and dreary this morning.  As I fell asleep, I was thinking about awakening to a dark and foggy day.  To my surprise this morning I awakened to a bright, sunlit day and heard the birds singing.  Soon I was questioning myself on how often I listen to erroneous predictions in my life.

These can always be refuted and replaced with loving thoughts from God.  We are free not to entertain these dark and dismal thoughts for they always spiral down into even darker ones.  Today, my promise is to question these thoughts and catch them early on.

2 Corinthians 4:18 reads “Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.”

Loving God

Today as I ponder loving God, I am lead to a sentence in a book where the author says, ” I really only love God as much as I love the person I love the least.”  What a powerful idea!  Isaiah 30:20-21 states, “Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them.  Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'”

Often, those teachers are those we love the least, but then I think about that priceless pearl that begins as  an irritant.  Once again, I realize lessons become blessings when understood.
