The Peace I Have Today was Worth Everything I Lost

I saw this quote today and it perfectly sums up what I feel right now. I remember constantly looking for some magical sign or glimmer of hope that things would get better or my prayers would finally be answered. Today I see things differently.

While I still believe in dreams and “magic”, maturity has taught me that the magic is in TODAY. Just the sheer fact that you woke up today makes you one of the RICHEST people in the world. As long as there is breath in your body, there is hope, possibility and “magic” that awaits you. All you need is FAITH and only that the size of a mustard seed.

Often I find myself tearing up when I think about how blessed I am. I could look for all the signs of potential failures or less than ideal situations but for what? God has given us POWER and strength for love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Everything else is worth losing in exchange for the above.

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Keep your soul & the perfect peace that God freely gives through salvation.
