Be grateful for where you are now.
“It doesn’t take as much faith to believe that everything happens for a reason as it does to embrace the belief that I am who and where I am now, today, for a reason – even if I don’t know what that reason is and even if I don’t particularly like who or where I am today,” a friend said to me.
“When I can take that in, my dissatisfaction and negativity disappear, and I can proceed calmly and gratefully with my life. To me,” he said, “that’s what spirituality is all about.”
Faith and hope aren’t just for the future. Try using them on today.
Could it be that you’re who you are and where you are now for a reason? Thank God for your life, exactly as it is, right now.
God, give me enough faith to believe in today.
I agree with this 1000%! Everything happens for a reason and everything happens exactly the way it’s supposed to. There are no coincidences. A gentleman moved into our sober living home yesterday, and it turns out that his girlfriend was the listing agent for the office that I leased several years ago. I was at the sober living house today, and the owner of the office building that I leased road by on his bike. I have not seen him in years. I’m not sure what that means, or if it even means anything. I leased out one of my homes to a couple of women a few years ago, and it turned out that they were in recovery. Shortly after that they turned my home into a sober living home for women. That was about the same time that I was getting out of the vacation rental business and I was trying to figure out what I was going to do next with my life. That is what opened up my eyes to the possibility of getting into the sober living business. Now I own my own recovery business. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and there are no coincidences. I am grateful that I have the faith that everything works out the way it’s supposed to.
