I asked God why I wasn't rich. And He showed me a man with the wealth of a thousand kings, who was lonely, and had no one to share it with.
I asked God why I wasn't beautiful. And He showed me a woman more beautiful than any other, who was ugly because of her vanity.
I asked God why he'd allowed me to become old. And He showed me a boy of 16, who lay dead at the scene of a car accident.
I asked God why I didn't have a bigger house. And He showed me a family of six, who'd just been evicted from their tiny shack, and were forced to live on the street.
I asked God why I had to work. And He showed me a man who couldn't find a decent job, because he'd never learned to read.
I asked God why I wasn't more popular. And He showed me a socialite with a thousand friends, who all left the moment the money and parties were no longer there.
I asked God why I wasn't smarter. And He showed me a natural born genius, who was serving life in prison for making ill use of his knowledge.
I asked God why He put up with a thankless sinner like me. And He showed me His Bible, and His Son who took my place at the judgment. And I knew then how much He loved me.
What's eating you today? Are your problems weighing heavy on your heart?
Know, then, that you are loved. And have a WONDERFUL day! Then brighten someone else's day, in any way you care to.
Remember, a candle loses nothing by lighting another candle. Just reach out and touch someone's life and brighten up their day.
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.
We cannot undo a single act we performed; We cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone forever.
The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise, and its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow, for it is yet to be born.
This leaves only one day, Any person can fight the battle of just one day. It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore, live but one day at a time.
