There was a quote that I read recently by Anne Keary that inspired this post.
So, here I am going to share bits of what it was talking about, and my personal input, elaborations, etc., even if it's not the exact meaning Anne Keary was trying to get across originally. Here we go....☺ (Read quote here if you want, but I can't say I understand or completely agree with all of it. The link goes to someone else's blog, but I don't know the blog or blogger.)
There can be little hindrances and distractions from the day that keep us from doing what we have planned out for the day, and maybe even just time in the day set aside to focus on God....
But, like the quote talks about, it's these little rough spots are the parts of the day that we can "best offer to God."
So, when something happens in your day that you didn't plan or didn't want that may hinder you from doing what you did plan, like a flat tire or a setback at work, or even forgetting to get something at the grocery store, we can give it to God, follow His example on how to deal with it (what would Jesus do), and be grateful. And one good thing about these experiences is that they sometimes bring to your attention things you may need to change (like an attitude, a situation in your life, a way you deal with something, etc.)
Try to do what Jesus would do when these situations come up, and in a thankful way.
Whether small, medium, or large, give it to God, let Him use it, learn from it, and move on. It'll be okay.
When you go to God & change your attitude, every hindrance can become a help—strengthening you, instead of keeping you down.
What are your thoughts? I would like to hear what you think.
Have a blessed day!
