"From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though
we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way."
2 Corinthians 5:16

From Perfect Fit yesterday to Divine Order today. One of my favorite moans is WHY? I really draw out the word when I say it and add in an expressive whine to go with it. Things just seem to happen that are off the wall or sometimes what I term as discouraging.

Time to change the whining tune of "why" and make it ..."Thank You." Even though I do not have any clue "why" I am thanking God for the "WHY?" situation... I need to approach it in a different direction. I tend to be self focused and often do not step back to see things from outside the box I live in. I know my understanding is limited in the knowledge of God's plan. Taking a new view to embrace it, even if at first with gritted teeth, the Thank You will grow with me as I change the "why" habit from whining to express true gratitude for things I cannot understand. This simple habit change will reinforce my faith and trust in what He is accomplishing behind the scenes.

These "Why" situations seem to shrink in importance as the moments tick by. Refocus your thoughts toward acceptance and praising.

Joyfully yours,

"In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps." Proverbs 16:9
