How often our thoughts do not bring us to think why we did not do this or that and did not become this or that? How many of us dream not of a magnificent career and when we start working dream of reaching the top one day. But when would that top being reached?
More than once we receive a figural slap in the face, and several time we are put hard on the ground, making us aware that perhaps we want to much of ourselves or that we have a little ‘too big me’ in us.
Humility is often a trait that is difficult to achieve, but we can better place our hope in it, to feel happy, than to keep on struggling in the swamp of our vanity.

At the lowest point in your life you need the guts and strength to see further than the horizon, but know that deep in you there is often more than you would think. Even when we do not feel like a great change could be coming, you should get out of the pitch trusting that also for you somewhere there (perhaps far away) shall shine the light of a bright morning-star willing to give you new energy and at last opening the doors which seemed so tightly closed.
– Every day when we get up we have to look at it again.
Every morning we can be thankful to God
that we may go on living in this life. –
Thine ordinances have I set before me.
31 I cleave unto thy testimonies:
O Jehovah, put me not to shame.”
(Ps 119:30-31 ASV) *
> Dear Heavenly Father,
thank You for this morning
when your powerful voice can knock on the door of my mind
to free me from negative thought patterns.
and give me the courage
to do something wonderful with my life today.
“Keep your face always toward the sunshine
– and shadows will fall behind you.”
― Walt Whitman
