God Has More in Store!

We blogged a lot about chapter two. Hopefully, we've had time to read chapter three as well b/c we'll want to start discussing chapter four on Monday or whenever we get around to it. I liked what Joel said in chapter three about God being our source, and "His creativity and resources are unlimited!....One idea from God can forever change the course of your life.....God can do anything, if you believe." I think that I recognize life-altering ideas from God. One of them is that I have a choice about my attitude and my feelings. I had always thought that whatever happened in my life was the reason for my feelings, but I now realize that circumstances cannot dictate how I feel. No matter what happens, I really try to stay in the present moment and not let outer events rob my peace. I try to stay grateful for the blessings in my life, making them bigger than the negative things that happen. For a little over a year now, I have tried living this way, and I must say I'm a lot happier b/c of it. I'm a lot more excited and enthusiastic about life.
Love and Light,
