Losing to Gain

Sometimes things are more right than you realize

It’s trending on Twitter that many who had saved up a rainy day fund, as they should, are facing its depletion. I don’t know why this jumped out at me so much, but it did.

Have you ever felt like you were doing everything right but still losing? It’s like being a “sand cookie” (Admiral William McRaven’s Make Your Bed) – life will sometimes toss you around for no apparent reason. The sooner we learn to accept life for what it is, we are free to actually move forward.

How many times have you needed to lose “everything” to gain it all?

As humans, something about us is just naturally off. We focus on the things we think are important in this life. Yet we struggle to pay any mind to what really matters.

It’s funny how it’s the little things in life that mean the most

Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes

There’s no dollar sign on a peace of mind, this I’ve come to know

While we face financial uncertainty as a whole, may God give us a spirit of endurance so that we can testify to His unwavering strength. May He help us to realign and to shift focus to what truly matters – His peace, our love for others, and the cultivation of Spirit.

Every challenge we face in life, we can face peacefully because we know that God has already won. God is in control. Let us bring this message forth to the world.
