There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her living boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, “If I could only see the world, I will marry you.”
One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, “Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?” The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sign of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn’t expected that . The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.
Her boyfriend left her in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: “Take good care of your eyes, my dear, before they were yours they were mine. I have seen the glory of God for years and am glad to have given you the chance to see His glory also. I have everlasting memories of His glory to reflect on and now you can build memories for yourself. Enjoy and be happy for I am happy for you.”
Life is full of challenges and how we handle those challenges define us. God places these life challenges in front of us for a reason, they not only help us to grow they spread His glory for all to see. So when you are faced with a life challenge, don’t be weary, rejoice and make the most of it growing stronger in His glory and blessings.
This is how human brain changes when the status changed. Only few remember what life was before, and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations. We are only human, correct, but so many times we speak without taking the time to think. Why is it that people only think of themselves without concern for anyone else? This often causes much more pain. So let us all rememnber:
Life Is A Gift
Today before you think of saying an unkind word–
think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food–
think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife–
think of someone who is crying out to God for a companion.
Today before you complain about life–
think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before you complain about your children–
think of someone who desires children but they’re barren.
Before you argue about your dirty house, someone didn’t clean or sweep–
think of the people who are living in the streets.
Before whining about the distance you drive–
think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet.
And when you are tired and complain about your job–
think of the unemployed, the disabled and those who wished they had your job.
But before you think of pointing the finger or condemning another–
remember that not one of us are without sin and we all answer to one maker.
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down–
put a smile on your face and thank God you’re alive and still around.
Life is a gift – Live it, Enjoy it, Celebrate it, and Fulfill it.
Walk daily with God at your side!
