Let’s make the decision to joyfully accept all situations—the lines, the traffic jams, the downed computers, and the rest—as opportunities to include God in our lives, in that moment, and then wait for the change in perception that will assuredly come. Our lives change when our perceptions change. This is an absolute that we can count on! ~ Casey, Karen. Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow. Red Wheel Weiser. Kindle Edition.
Can you joyfully accept an ice maker stopping?
A disposal jammed? A lightbulb you can’t find to replace
and when someone takes it out, pronounces it burned out
and you have to get help at the hardware store to match it,
get shocked putting it in, finally get it in and the next day it doesn’t work?
One appliance repairman, two visits because the first didn’t take
as to the ice maker? The second a whole day later?
That was my Sunday through Tuesday and I lived through it.
“Let’s make the decision to joyfully accept all situations…”
Was that really an opportunity to include God in my life,
in that moment, and then wait for the change in perception
that would assuredly come? Maybe. I’ll try to realize that
next time I feel a call to edit life’s events!!!
