HE doesn't make mistakes

You know why I love blog surfing? Because I find awesome words that other people have to say and I find similar situations that let me know that I am not the only one in that boat. Tonight I saw this quote on this site: "Perhaps having a good life, one that we are satisfied or joyful in, is not measured by how much subjective good there actually is in our lives, but simply in if we look for satisfaction and joy." I had a conversation with a friend today about this exact same thing. Wouldn't it be lovely if every person in our lives was positive and always looked at the positive side of life rather than dwelling on the negative? I know I don't always do a great job at this but I try so hard to! And if everyone else around me was doing it, wouldn't it make it that much easier?

One of my favorite lessons from my kids at church is something I have to remind myself of daily. During a story time, the story leader looked out to the kids and said, "God doesn't make mistakes." I heard him loud and clear. Every kid in that room left for a minute while I digested what I had just been reminded and I thought, "You're right! He doesn't make mistakes." I need to take what I have been given, learn from it, grow from it, and trust Him!! I don't always understand why I am in certain situations but I want to always "trust God no matter what" (another lesson from my kids at church).
