The Fount Of Every Blessing
Sports figures upon winning championships often give thanks to a higher power, oddly enough they seem less than thankful for their losses and defeats. But as today’s picture quote says, our real or best blessings often come to us wrapped in pain, loss, and disappointment. Old Testament Job had a remarkable faith in his loving and infinite source and even at his lowest point said, “Though he slay me, yet will I serve him.” And no Job was not a glutton for punishment, but had learned a great secret as have I and others:
“I am so glad and grateful that everything that I could ever want or need is already mine and coming to me at just the right time and in just the right way from my loving and infinite source.”
When things go much better than we expect or much less it might be good to pretend for a moment that we are living someone else’s life. The reality is that our higher best self tailor-made this life just for us and whatever comes was planned to always be to our highest and best good.
Don’t believe me, just wait and see. In the great cast party that always follows the final production of a successful run on Broadway we will compare notes. See if the great concluding line from the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley does not say it all:
“I am the master of my fate, the captain of my soul.”
And I might add, playwright, producer, scenery designer and casting director too. Nice job, you had us on the edge of our seats throughout, wondering what was going to happen next. Bravo, bravo.
