Excerpted from May You Be Blessed by Kate Nowak

Even those experiences we deem calamitous can carry the seeds of a great blessing. It is often only in retrospect, however, that the benefit reveals itself. And whether or not it reveals itself and how quickly it does so, is dependent upon only one thing: our own individual perspective.

We determine whether something will be a blessing or a curse by the way we choose to see it.

Life is an ongoing process, and most of us meet something at almost every turn we wish were different. But just because something is not turning out the way we want, doesn't mean it won't. And when we insist on calling it good, when we make up our minds that no matter what, we're going to see it as a blessing, then our minds start working overtime to prove us right. Magical things tend to happen and that which we labeled a blessing, more often than not, turns out to be one...

...You have a mind that always tries to be right about everything so you might as well use it to your advantage. Become a hunter of blessings, actively seeking them out in every experience and person you encounter. No matter how bad a situation or person might seem, say to yourself and mean it, "There's a blessing in this, and I will find it!"

Your subconscious will accept this statement as a direct order and, if necessary, move heaven and earth to make certain the blessing is found. Follow this regimen for a while and you may very well discover that you've poked a hole in every problem and send every misery packing. Problems and miseries don't tend to stay in an atmosphere of blessings for very long.

…So the next time a difficulty arises, don't let yourself get tied up in knots. Take a deep breath and relax. You have nothing to worry about. That difficulty is nothing more than a signal that a blessing is on its way. And as you start looking for the blessing, everything else will fade away.

"Become a hunter of blessings, actively seeking them out in every experience and person you encounter."

The Hope of Heaven

Only Christ can walk with us through the darkness
and bring us into the light of a new dawn.
Only Christ can give us hope and certainty
that one day we will understand more clearly
the things that are mysteries to us now.
-Roy Lessin

Jesus is the Lighthouse that draws us toward the hope of heaven. He lights our way to paths of righteousness.

Whoever follows Me...will have the light of life.
John 8:12 NIV
