“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”–Rabindranath Tagore
Perspective gives way to negative or positive thoughts. It’s our choice which side of the bench we sit on, positive or negative. Don’t give way to the negative even when that’s all you can see.
Negativity is a byproduct of the enemy wanting you to stay status quo. Yes, easier said than done. Many days I have to give to God, “I don’t see you, feel you, or understand why I suffer.” At this point merely surrender to God, let him know that you believe he has a way when you can’t see a way out.
The quote is right clouds can add a beautiful picturesque color filled Sunset to the end of the day. A dramatic wonder of God’s creation.
Right now I am working through a time where I feel apart from God. It’s not that I don’t believe, or have faith. It’s that at this moment I need to quiet my mind and try to hear what God is saying. I am struggling through and keep letting God know I’m here.

“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”–Unknown
We’re all guilty of looking back into the shadows of our lives. It’s within those shadows that you find depression, sadness, and loneliness.
Shadows hide from us the destiny that God has for us. God does not live in the shadows he lives in the light. Turn your face to the sunshine, find warmth in the suns embrace. Feel the warmth open up your dreams.
It’s much easier to look back for some reason. Many of us struggle to find the light. I would urge you this day to venture outside, close your eyes and look up to the sun. Take a moment to let the Universe know you are grateful.
It’s the simple things like this that build the foundation of your strength.

“Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.”–Oprah Winfrey
We all wish we had less struggle. Another quote that I will paraphrase you can’t become a good sailor in calm seas. For God to bless our lives with more, we must be able to handle the trials and tribulations of life with grace.
In my own life, I am challenged with many obstacles and hurdles. Past articles I have written spoke to this as taking a trip, and from time-to-time, we run into road construction. Sometimes we can see the development in front of us and sometimes what we need to understand is just over the horizon.
Learning to have the patience that the Universe is moving to clear our path. Faith that God has a destiny preplanned for our life. Let your future unfold without imposing your will. Do the work before you, have patience when necessary and hold unwavering faith that through the struggle lies your destiny.

“Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.”–Gordon B. Hinckley
The difference in winning and losing is work. What we mean by action is the daily effort put into that which you seek. Whether it is a success in business, success in marriage, success in raising children or just being your best self. No matter the endeavor it all takes work!
Deciding to do anything to produce a result requires activity that produces productivity. Never confuse the two. Activity and productivity must be in concert with each other to have any success.
Organize each day with tasks that you must complete. Do not move past a function until you finish it. The worst thing is to multi-task during a job. Laser focus on achieving a task, then move on. Giving your full attention to the task at hand will create amazing results.
Use a task management system to lay out your day’s work. Finish! That is the key to productivity is to finish the task.
If you don’t want the weeds to grow in your life. Do the work at hand, have faith that what you endeavor to do is coming to pass.

“Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.”–Saint Augustine
Learning to give our all in the endeavors of life will carry us through the tumultuous waters that rock our lives boat. When trials and tribulations challenge our experience, we must buckle down in faith.
Learning to trust God in total is a challenge. Faith or what we all understand blind faith goes against what most of us learn in life. Life is about to show me first, then I will believe you. How many times have you heard that in your life?
The quote rings so true. If you learn to trust God, stay in faith, do the work, life will bloom for those that believe. Somedays for me it’s a challenge, but I make this my mantra every day to stay in faith.
Take time right now to let God know you’re grateful for his presence in your life!
