Wrapping It Up, Pt. II

Wrapping It Up, Pt.1 can be found here.

Pt. II:  Last year, on May 13th,  I began reading “The One Year Daily Insights With Zig Ziglar and Dr. Ike Reighard. The book had been recomended by a friend and there has not been a single day that I have not meditated on the daily reading. It is usually the very first thing I do after feeding and taking the dogs out.  It is a habit.

I have heard that “Coincidence is when God does a miracle, but wants to remain anonymous.”      unknown-1

This snippit from today’s insight might be a coincidence, but then again . . .

Prison or Classroom

Life is all about perspective. If we see difficult people and painful situations as threats, they become prisons for our souls. Like inmates at medieval dungeons, we languish away for days and weeks, wishing the problem would just go away, or we try frantically to get out any way we can.

Whether our problems are caused by our own dumb mistakes, the sins of others, natural disasters, or anything else, our difficulties can, instead of dungeons, become classrooms where we learn life’s greatest lessons — if we’ll pay attention to them.

Taken from January 14, Daily Insights.

Attention being paid.

  1. Zig Ziglar had so many wonderful insights. And such common sense.

    I’d agree with Zig…life’s a classroom, and God teaches us important lessons here. So much to learn…so little time in a lifetime!
