I recently read the following quote on Twitter:

There are no mistakes in life, just lessons.

Yes, things happen in life that hurt and upset us, cause us to question life in general and even question God’s existence, but everything that happens to us, happens for a reason. It’s because there’s a reason for everything happening that we can never make mistakes.

I know that sounds mad as of course we make mistakes! However it’s through our mistakes that we learn, and through our mistakes we learn to put our full faith and trust in God to provide all we need in life…from the smallest thing to the biggest desire, God can, and will, answer them all.

I read the following quote recently on Twitter, and it challenged me:

We see not what we are looking at but what we are looking for – Unknown

It also reminded me of the following saying:

Sometimes we can’t see the wood for the trees

Yes, I found that both these quotes/sayings reminded me that sometimes we only see or hear what we want to, and not what is actual there/audible. We can often be most guilty of this when it comes to listening to God‘s directions or instructions for us, by pretending we don’t hear Him or convincing ourselves that it’s not really God’s voice we hear.

We must stay focused on reality and more importantly, focused on God, so that we see and hear His instructions for us. Don’t ignore what God wants you to do, as after all He knows best for you and has been looking for you to make a difference in His world.

No matter how much we try to always say and do only what God would want us to say and do, during times of great stress or anger we can all be guilty of saying something which the second we say it, we regret it…and those can often be the fatal words in a relationship.

I read the following statement on Twitter recently:

Be careful with your words. Once they are spoken, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten!

Doesn’t that just sum up perfectly what I was saying? Yes we should be very careful about what we say, particularly in moments of frustration or anger, as those are the words most likely to hurt or upset  the person they are aimed at, and in turn leave a lasting pain which they may forgive, but they will never forget!

In this last weeks, I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I’ve been hurt and upset about some things that were said to me. Things which were completely unfair and founded in nothing but guesswork, and that hurt! (see my earlier blog post entitled Why Oh Why and People!)

If you follow me on Twitter you may also have read one of my tweets from Monday evening when I stated that I’d had a really crappy day on Monday and hoped that my week would only get better…well I am glad to tell you that it did get better!

I just love how when you’re down and feeling really low, friends are there to pick you up and raise your spirits, helping you to see things from a different, more positive perspective. Thanks you my friends…you know who you are!

My working week was rounded off today by meeting up with a friend I’ve not seen for a while, for lunch. We had a good blether and a good laugh. It was just what I needed after some of recent events. Thank you my friend…you know who you are!

What I want to say about this is that I truly believe that having friends come along and lift you up when you’re at your lowest, is God‘s doing. He knows when we’re hurting, He knows when we’re in need, He knows when we need help and He alone is able to send us the help we need. Thank you God, for all you do for me.
