“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.

“If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges.”–Pat Riley
What we’ve been talking about in this year on the blog has really focused our attention on the organized effort. Not letting fear overcome our positive attitude. Fighting through fear!
When we strive to these paradigms, ideas, and focus. We will overcome and handle more significant challenges as they come.
Every day, put your best foot forward. Steps forward create momentum this momentum will increase strength and the size of your actions. Cancel negative thoughts as they come. Somedays those negative thoughts can come in a barrage. Just let the enemy know he can throw the kitchen sink at you. God has you!
Just know in your heart that no matter how much you struggle to find any reason to be definite, sometimes just surrender to God. Tell him that he knows your heart today is a struggle, and you’re not giving up.
When you learn to maintain a positive attitude in the face of adversity. Incredible changes, blessing, and hope will reveal themselves to you. Stay strong!

“Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.”–Joyce Meyer
Letting God do his work takes time. Patience allows God to see your faith, that you trust enough to allow your life’s destiny to open up as it should. When you lose faith because times get tough slows the progress.
We all struggle with patience because we want everything right now. Living in a world that wants us to believe now, now, now!
The struggle is we don’t see an outcome being positive quickly enough then our first instinct is to jump in the middle of something that needs time. Yes, you have to do the work, what’s necessary to move things along.
There is a difference in taking steps to realize a change, or forcing something that is not altogether ready to manifest. For example, a relationship you push too hard when you push someone away because you don’t give them the time and space to come to the same place you are.
Worse still is you merely give up. “Oh this is not going to work, or it would have by now.” The Universe will align the sun, the moon and the stars in your favor with Patience. Remember you cannot say I want a new job and then order a pizza and wait. You have to get out and do the work, look for a job, interview and keep chugging until you here “Welcome we want to hire you.”
Comments & Questions:
Does your life seem shattered like a piece of glass? So many broken pieces it just seems hopeless to even try and clean it up.
Good news is that our shattered lives can be cleaned up just like a shattered piece of glass. Once you begin to clean up the glass (your life) keep in mind that glass is hard to clean up. Sometimes you will step on a sliver that was left behind.
You pick up the sliver and throw it away. It may have cut your foot, felt like a setback. It too is temporary. The good news is the clean up is complete. It may have taken time to clean up the mess, but finally, it gets done.
So what can help with the clean up:
- Acceptance that the glass is broken and YOU are going to be okay!
- Let God know you’re ready to see what he has in store for you going forward.
- Organize your day to allow for meditation, positive thought.
- Begin to fill your mind with positive thoughts, read good books, watch real videos.
- Yoga is a fantastic way to connect with yourself. Find a fun Yoga class. If you cannot afford a Yoga class many hospitals, YWCA or community centers offer free or low fee classes.
- Keep active. Walk, workout, visit the park, take your pets out, keep busy as much as possible. Activity keeps your mind somewhere else besides in the past. Dwelling on the broken glass just prolongs positive progress.
If you need to seek professional help, then don’t walk run towards the help you need.
