No matter how long the winter is, spring is sure to follow

spring

Sometimes life is hard. You find yourself just surviving. We move from one task to another seeking to create a better life.

Sometimes we don’t see the full potential. There is more to living than just living. If we quit trying so hard we might see things in a different light.

Things are seen based on the direction of our focus.

Sometimes the bad things are so easy to spot. Sometimes the good takes a slower, more precise eye.

If you find yourself in a shadow and can’t find your joy take a step towards the light. Begin seeking the good. Stop and actually look for it. There is usually more there than we acknowledge. To be happy is a choice. Life is always going to be full of pain and suffering but we can choose to make the most of each moment. Even the bad ones.

2 Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed – that exhilarating finish in and with God – he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. – Hebrews 12:2
