“I believe God is managing affairs and that He doesn’t need any advice from me. With God in charge, I believe everything will work out for the best in the end. So what is there to worry about.”
– Henry Ford
Here’s the first post of my Food For Thought Friday, series on Friday…
Merriam-Webster defines ‘glad‘ as “feeling pleasure, joy, or delight.” I agree, but I think we use the term in a very specific context – where there’s a connotation of choice between what transpired and what might have been, and we’re happy things worked out the way they did. The underlying belief is that things work out for the best, and maybe there’s even a hint of faith; a belief that we’re guided to our highest good, so maybe we should just be glad for whatever comes our way. Of course, according to the Law of Attraction, when you are glad, you will attract more to be glad for.
Think about it.
When you look back on situations that you are glad with the outcome, did it lead to more reasons to be glad?
“Wherever you are, or whatever
has happened, just be glad.
Be glad because you are here.
You are here in a beautiful world;
and all that is beautiful may be found
in this world…a world wherein all the
dreams of life may be realized,
and all the visions of the soul made true.”
“Just be glad, and you always will be glad.
You will have better reason to be glad.
You will have more and more
things to make you glad.”
“For great is the power of sunshine,
especially human sunshine. It can change anything,
transform anything, re-make anything,
and cause anything to become
as fair and beautiful as itself.”
“Just be glad and your fate will change;
a new life will begin and a new
future will dawn for you.”
“When things are not to your liking,
be glad nevertheless, for the glad heart
can cause all things to be
as we wish them to be.”
“There is magic in the sunshine of the soul ;
there is a charmed power in the radiant
splendor of a beaming countenance.
For all things respond to the call of rejoicing;
all things gather where life is a song.”
– Christian D. Larson
