Promise of a new Day

Death, when it approaches, ought not take one by surprise. It should be a part of the full expectancy of life. —Muriel Spark—

The process of living includes many dimensions. We can joyfully anticipate high periods and we must expect pain. We won’t escape sorrow over the wrongs we’ve committed nor grief for the departure of a dear one. Anxiety over what many transpire is a given. But working to develop a balanced perception of all the events in our lives will ease our way. It’s our overreactions to the ups and downs that make all of our daily steps uncertain.
Fearing the unknown wastes our time. How much better to trust that life will offer us exactly what we need to develop as healthy human beings. No event will be more than we can handle. All events are necessities of life, and each event need simple acceptance.
If I understand that every situation carries a blessing, today will offer me comfort throughout.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
