Five Minute Friday — Find

Well, it’s Saturday, so it must be time for Five Minute Friday.

I enjoy taking five minutes {or so} to develop some thoughts on a specific prompt word. That’s the premise of Five Minute Friday where over 100 of us congregate at Kate’s place (http://katemotaung.com/2015/08/20/five-minute-friday-find/) to share our collective thoughts. And they are interesting reads! You should visit the links at the end of Kate’s post.

Well, here goes. Today’s (yesterday’s?) prompt was FIND. The timer is set, so let’s GO

… seek, and you will find …

That’s the middle section of Jesus’ words in Matthew 7:7.

It’s simple maxim. What you seek is literally what you will find.

If, for instance, you awake distressed, your whole day will be tempered by that emotion. If you seek annoyance you are sure to find it in everyday life. You’ll focus on the troubles and blunt out the happiness.

On the other hand, if you wake up feeling blessed and thankful for another shot at life {even if it’s after a couple of cups of coffee} you will tend to find the good in even the biggest calamities. You’ll find the sun shining through the clouds, the smell of the rose rather than the thorn, the rhapsody of the birds.

Attitude. It’s all about attitude. Seek the good and you will surely find it. Seek the gloom and doom and surely it will find you. It’s your decision.

Which are you choosing today … STOP

… and every day?

Well, that’s it. Short and sweet.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: Yield.
