Postive Thoughts

There is no better saying for my current life situation than "when it rains, it pours."  As stressed as I am with getting all of this work done in 2 & 1/2 weeks my computer decided to also malfunction on me. So it is now in tech support which could mean I won't have a computer for a solid week.  I just pray that they can fix it.  My car also went crazy last week so it is in the shop.  I really feel like the devil is testing me right now but I am not going to let him win.

Here are some postive thoughts for anyone else who may be going through a hard time.

No matter what life brings you there is always something positive you can look to.  In my situation I am thankful for being healthy.  If I was sick on top of everything else I don't know how I would be able to make it. God never gives us more than we can handle.  I truly believe that each trial that I go through is making me a stronger person.  I am much stronger and wiser than I was before I came to college.  I have had my hard times but I can't regret anything because I love who I am today.

Alexander Graham Bell said "When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us."  This is such a true and inspiring statement.  It is so important not to dwell on the past and to look toward the future. 

I'll end with a verse and a song that has really helped me get through these past few weeks.
James 1:  2-4 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

I'm really glad that you asked me to test out the commenting on your blog because this was a really good post. I really needed to read this right now, and I especially liked the quote and Bible verse...I may be stealing them ;) Hope you are having a great week :)
