Have you ever felt like the world is plotting against you? Like you spend each day sailing against the wind?
Regardless of where you’re trying to go, it’s easier with the wind behind you. As my wife says, “I try to envision I’m on this little magic carpet, just floating to wherever life takes me.” We’d all love to have a magic carpet to fly us around.
But until that genie appears, we’re all going to face the wind. The question becomes, why resist when you can glide?
Try to imagine that everything that happens to you is the best possible scenario. What’s the difference between that and having faith in God’s plan? Maybe missing your meeting because you hit every red light saved you from an accident.
In order to be happy, we have to focus on what we can control. I may not be able to change the wind, but I can adjust my sails. ♠
