Ever feel like your world is?
Every now and then I go through a period of discontentment, a time when I seem to focus on all the negatives around me and miss the positives. God has a way of redirecting my point of view.
I was talking to a friend last night, kind of crying on her shoulder, or venting, or however you want to put it.
When I finally finished spewing it all out, she asked, "Have you heard about ____?" (our mutual friend, a wonderful Christian and Mom in her mid-30s). "She found out last week she has a brain tumor."
Suddenly, my problems seemed so petty.
My complaints so immature.
And I was ashamed.
I guess that was the Lord's way of "taking me out to the woodshed", so to speak.
My backside is still hurting :).
