A few months ago I was visiting with a neighbor that stopped by. She said something that has stayed in my mind, as we were discussing a mutual acquaintance, she said nothing like that would ever happen for me. It was about how this person had upgraded houses. As she was saying those words I didn’t say anything but inside my head I was thinking just the opposite, if it can unravel that good for that person surly it will happen for me. In my opinion that is what FAITH IS ALL ABOUT. To the outside world looking in, of course it seems impossible , however the longer I live the more I’m convinced you have to see it in your imagination long before it occurs. I too used to be that girl whenever something bad happened would get discouraged and ask “why me”? If this is all my life is about why do I even exist? These days it’s “why NOT me”? I think yep if they did it, so can I. It’s a refreshing attitude and a better approach knowing that someday I will have that thing. Some may view this as me living with my head in the clouds but I view it as mountains. I can climb that mountain, or I can say to that mountain fall knowing it will crumble one stone at a time until the avalanche hits and BOOM it’s gone. In the past I’m not going to lie I would look at people and think it’s not fair for them to have exactly what I want, I’m more deserving, I work harder, I’m a better person and so on. Yeah that’s didn’t work so well and I was obviously green with envy. I’ve since decided green is not a good color on me so I don’t do that anymore. I love seeing all my friends happy and well and think one day I too will be living in bliss. Until that magical day arrives I will continue looking up at the mountains ready to take action for climbing or running away from falling rocks. Either way I know I’m not sitting around in self pity wondering “why me”. It’s a great day go out and enjoy it.
“And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.” Matthew 17:20
