From Tracie: That's The Powerful Stuff

That's The Powerful Stuff

On Saturdays, I like to share one great thing I read during the week.
Today, this is that thing:

The little stuff we are overlooking is the powerful stuff

Have you ever had one of those moments when something goes wrong, and you just feel really angry? Maybe the rest of your day was fine, but that night all you could think about was the thing that went wrong?

Let me be the first person to raise my hand, and admit that I have found myself doing this far too often.

My friend at Incurable Hope wrote about a story that stayed in the back of her memory, until she was ready to understand its deeper meaning.

"How often we look at something and lament over what didn’t go well.
How little we look at a stumble, and rejoice in the fact that we didn’t fall."
- Incurable Hope

What little blessings have you overlooked, missing their power?

  1. Hi Tracie, I really like this. So often we tend to forget or not see how strong we are through our trial and tribulations that we overlook our strengths and our perseverance.

    Thank you for sharing this!
