THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: LIFE IS UNPREDICTABLE SO YOU BETTER GET USED TO IT. (Part 1) It just is. If your a control freak your going to be double frustrated. Have you ever heard the term, ‘ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES’…it’s another way of saying; When things don’t go your way, you adapt to the changes and keep moving ahead instead of flipping out. Life is about making CONSTANT ADJUSTMENTS TO THE PRESENT REALITY. There’s nothing wrong with planning, we all do. Plan ahead, plan for the future, plan what your going to do tomorrow…all good, but you better be flexible. Life will not allow you to write the complete script. You can write some of it…and it may work out just as your wrote it. God has something to say about that script…He’s going to do some editing from time to time, you better be ready for that. Then, there’s life itself. Things happen, some good some bad and there’s no explanation…you gotta roll with the punches. In the boxing ring, you don’t know what your opponent is going to throw at you…you may think you do, but he may have something else in mind…if you don’t roll with the punches, your finished. Our confidence? GOD IS IN CONTROL and the key to realizing that is TOTAL SURRENDER TO HIM EVERY DAY. I marveled at the attitude of our sister Yolie Quintero. She didn’t write the passing away of her husband into the script. When I first saw her after he went to be with Jesus she had already accepted that this is what God wanted. It’s sad and we grieve, but ultimately we are surrendered to God and we roll with the punches. LIFE IS UNPREDICTABLE SO YOU BETTER GET USED TO IT. [Psalms 27:13] “I would have lost heart, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.”
