We should always remember to take time and learn the lessons of life.
Everything we go through whether good or bad will serve a purpose for us
down the road. Either we'll have great memories that we can think on when
the storms of life are raging or we can use the bad experiences to learn
lessons so that our future will be made better because of them. It is in
our ability how we see our days. Every experience can be used to our
benefit to strengthen our spirit and our resolve. Never see the bad
experiences as time wasted because in most cases the tough times
strengthened our backbone and showed us how strong we really are. When we
recognize that we are made better, stronger and wiser by the tough times,
that is when we can go through them with a quiet confidence that this
tough time is serving a purpose to make us even more resilient than we
Never allow yourself to get down or question your life's purpose. See
this day as an opportunity to use all of your past experience to make the
best of where you are right now. Use the wisdom that you've attained to
change your mindset. See the negatives and change them into positives.
If you've lost your job, see it as an opportunity to excel in a better
position. If your health isn't at its best, use what you learned from
what you've done wrong in times past and make better decisions now to
improve your health by eating better, exercising more and simply treating
your body with respect realizing that it is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
No matter what experiences we've had, we can use them to better our
situation right now. We don't have to look at the glass as half empty,
but we can see it as more than half-full and on its way to overflowing.
It's not a matter of positive thinking, but rather it is a life choice to
bless our life with our words, our deeds and our actions. Be encouraged
to do all that you can to use every experience to your advantage. Whether
it was good or bad; use it to your benefit. All that you have learned and
attained from your years of living, use it to your advantage to better
your life right now. When you do, you will be proud of how you've used
your past experiences and made them work for you in this present time and
in your future.
I hope this message inspires and challenges your heart to see that every
challenge and every experience of life can serve a purpose in teaching us
and making us better than we were before.
JIGSAW PUZZLE WISDOM
Everything I Needed To Know About Life, I Learned From A Jigsaw Puzzle.
1. Don't force a fit. If something is meant to be, it will come together
2. When things aren't going so well, take a break. Everything will look
different when you return.
3. Be sure to look at the big picture. Getting hung up on the little pieces
only leads to frustration.
4. Perseverance pays off. Every important puzzle went together bit by bit,
piece by piece.
5. When one spot stops working, move to another. But be sure to come back
later (see #4).
6. The creator of the puzzle gave you the picture as a guidebook.
7. Variety is the spice of life. It's the different colors and patterns
that make the puzzle interesting.
8. Working together with friends and family makes any task fun.
9. Establish the border first. Boundaries give a sense of security and order.
10. Don't be afraid to try different combinations. Some matches are surprising.
11. Take time often to celebrate your successes - even little ones.
12. Anything worth doing takes time and effort. A great puzzle can't be rushed.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
James 1:22-25 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving
your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is
like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth
himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man
he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth
therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man
shall be blessed in his deed.”
Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great
and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Isaiah 30:21 “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is
the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn
to the left.”
Galatians 6:7-9 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man
soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of
the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the
Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for
in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Psalm 138:6-8 “Though the LORD be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly:
but the proud He knoweth afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
Thou wilt revive me: Thou shalt stretch forth Thine hand against the wrath
of mine enemies, and Thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect
that which concerneth me: Thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake
not the works of Thine own hands.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
