"No future is totally dark and hopeless if we have faith." Reverend Paul Osumi
Sometimes things don't work out.
Regardless of how hard you work or how hard you try, there are going to be times when things don't go your way. And there's little you can do except pick yourself up and get back in the saddle. And make things better.
It may not seem fair. And it may not seem right. But that's just the way it is.
When things go wrong, there's a tendency to focus on the bad; on what you don't have, on what you can't do. You see others doing great things and wish you could do them. You see what others have and wish you could have them.
You keep hoping things will get better. You keep praying for things to work out. But things aren't getting better, things aren't going your way. So you zero in on your weak points. You focus on your shortcomings and faults. And you feel lousy.
Maybe, just maybe, its God's way of setting the table.
"Faith is God's work within us." St. Thomas Aquinas
God has great plans for you. Something bigger than you can imagine, something grander than you ever thought possible. Sometimes it's hard to see them. Sometimes it's hard to find them. But they're there. He has placed you where you are right now for a reason. You are right where you need to be. You have everything you could ever ask for.
Even if things aren't currently going your way, He has prepared you to win. Even if things aren't looking real rosy right this minute, He has blessed you with an indefatigable spirit. Even if your goals and aspirations seem a million miles away, He has given you everything you'll ever need to achieve each and every goal you hold in your heart.
You just need to reach out, take the baton - and run with it.
"Faith moves mountains, but you have to keep pushing while you are praying." Mason Cooley
Are you going to allow negative clutter to become your undoing? I don't think so. Instead of looking at what you don't have, why not look at what you've got going for you right now? Believe it or not, you've got a lot more going for you than you probably think.
You've got God given gifts nobody else can match. You've got a wellspring of limitless strength waiting to be tapped. You've got everything you need to do anything you want. Rather than wasting another minute obsessing over what you lack, you need to look within.
You need to focus on what you can do right now. And then do it. And give yourself a chance.
"Faith is a twenty-four hour a day commitment." Mary Kay Ash
Life is about choices. Choices you make. Choices you fail to make.
Life is about action. The actions you take. And those you fail to take.
And life is about belief.
MAKE A CHOICE! You can allow negative clutter to accumulate in your life. You can buy into all sorts of negative nonsense. You can allow your life to become one big negative cesspool, placing limits on what you can have, be and do. Or you can make your life everything you have ever dreamed it could be... and more.
TAKE ACTION! You can sit back and allow fate to take its course, constantly cowering in the corner when the going gets rough. Or you can do what you can do, with what you have, right here and right now.
BELIEVE! Nothing on earth can stop you when you refuse to be stopped. Absolutely nothing! Believe you can and you will. Believe you can't and you're sunk.
Make a choice to take action; massive, deliberative, decisive action that moves you in the direction of your dreams each and every day. When you make faith your calling card, nothing can stand in your way.
The Bottom Line: Never stop believing no matter what.
