Back on My Square

strength_motivational_quote

So a few days ago I fell off my square (as my father would say).  What that means is that I let someone affect my attitude and my mood that day.  While I am human, and I fall and there are times when the actions of others may impact me.  Now while that is fine temporarily, it should never be the case where it is allowed to linger.  Well I was knocked off my square that day.

I am not going to devote any more time in my blog to the person or the situation, but what I will say is that I am learning each and every day that I am getting better because the old me would have been confrontational and pissed off but I noticed the progress I have made.  I definitely want to thank God for progress.

pray, faith, god

There has been a definite transformation in my life as I grow and become the person I am called to be.  I am thankful that the Lord is maturing me into a wiser, calmer and less confrontational person than I have been in the past.  I thank God for the work, the process and the progress that has been made up to this point.  I am thankful for the wins as well as the losses.  As the days get closer to the anniversary of my birth, I am excited that “I am not what I ought to be but thankful that I am not what I used to be”.

When I think about it, that is exactly what we are supposed to do.  We are supposed to keep learning and keep growing.  Each and everyday God gives us another chance another opportunity and it is up to us to make the most of it.  While there will be times when we stumble and even fall, each and every day God gives us a sufficient supply of Grace and Mercy to make it through.
