Regardless if you can make out the silver lining or not cloudy days get a bad rap.
Why do we fixate on the negative things in life?
Can we worship God in the sunshine and appreciate the lesson learned in the rain without it turning into such a drama fest?
God says the ground is cursed because of Adam. You will reap of it by the sweat of your brow.
I am continuing to try and capture success as it happens in my life and it feels quite similar to trying to catch a butterfly with a fishing net.
I read somewhere that, “anything worth having is a struggle to get”, or the quote from ‘A League of their Own’, “the hard is what makes it great!”
I am discovering, yes, you can continue on in your current life situation and call it good. But what are you comparing it to?
We are told to be content, the Apostle Paul said he found the secret to contentment and he knew what it was to be in want and to have abundance.

Do you think where you are in life is the sweet spot?
Do you feel you have made your choices or have your choices made you? Do you feel like you even had a choice?
I have found that it is hard to believe or imagine the best outcome when your whole life has been one let down after another.
How do we do it then?

I am currently studying a little book, a self help book, from 1931 called I DARE YOU, by William H. Danforth of the Purina company.
I will be doing a book review of it.

God’s laws, all of his laws, both spiritual and physical laws are for us.
To sustain us, help us and bring us closer to Himself.
