SEE WHAT TO SAY TO GOD CONCERNING 2020
A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing :Last year, I had a surgery and my gallbladder was removed. I had to stay stuck in bed due to this surgery for many months. The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favorite job in the publishing company in which I had worked for 30 years of my life. The same year I experienced the sorrow of death of my Father. And in the same year my son failed in his medical exams because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at the Hospital with cast on for several months. The car was destroyed, which was another great loss. At the end he wrote :Alas! It was such a bad year!!! When the writers wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper, she left the room silently and came back with another paper which she placed on the side of her husband’s writing. The husband found the following written on the paper : Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain. I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace. The same year my father, at the age of 95 years ,without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met His Creator. The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting disability. At the end she wrote :Last year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well!!
The challenge to each one of us is what can we write of the year 2020???? See!!! The same incident but different viewpoints.
Moral Teaching :In our daily lives we must see that it’s not happiness that makes us grateful but gratefulness that makes us happy. There is always, always, always something to be thankful for!!! Your current position is somebody’s future expectation. Your life now is somebody prayer request. Don’t let the devil point at you that somebody is doing better than you. It is a strategy for ingratitude. Anything you celebrate multiplies,anything you despise diminishes.
Appreciation is the vehicle for acceleration. Gratitude is the lift to great attitude. To see what God will do, you must acknowledge what God has done in your life.
Even this year of COVID 19 we have many reasons to thank our Good Lord for ,you need only to sit back count your blessings one by one from the beginning of this year till now and you will have enough reasons to thank our Good Lord for everything not forgetting the greatest gift is the gift of life. Stay safe, stay grateful. Have a wonderful Christmas season and a Happy New year 2021 full of God’s Providence. May our Good Lord continue blessing you now and forever more. Amen
