Sometimes this happens to us, we are enjoying something until suddenly....it's gone! Sometimes we have to leave and let go. Holding on to something that is gone cannot do us much good, especially when what it was is gone forever.
This may sound rather harsh, as we are all in loss in our lives at one point or the other. It is easier said than done, but we all have to move on, God will always have something better for us, if He allowed it to go in the first place, it is because He definitely has something better for us.
His word says,"......forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus"- Philippians 3:13,14

This is a common thing, our lovely ladies do. I don't blame them, I enjoy watching them take care of their looks in a hurry on the train.
BUT, do we bring this into our lives spiritually? The best way to look good would be to spend time in front of a nice dressing table/ mirror at home and then you can really get the best look.
BUT, when you rush into the trains and do it all in a rush............you know what to expect. Even if you get it all right. It can never be compared to the time you spend, if you got up earlier and had a good time at home getting it done far better.
WE do this with our lives sometimes. We are in a rush to look good on the outside, we quickly rush and make up our prayers and devotions on the run, sometimes on the train. "God understands" is always our self-consoling pat on the back.
BUT wouldn't it be better if we take time to go before God's dressing table at home. If we wake up earlier, we'll have a look at the mirror of His word and see where we are lacking, and we'll even have time to pray! May we not rush it all up in seconds, sometimes with a sign of the cross and a few words of prayer and think we'll get good looking spiritually that way!
Of course, God's word says, "BE NOT DECEIVED; GOD IS NOT MOCKED FOR WHATSOEVER A MAN SOWETH, THAT SHALL HE ALSO REAP"-Galatians 6 :7

Lets get down to face the real stuff! No two days are the same. Some days are bright and great for us and we are beaming!Some days are not. We are not always on the high and some days leave us wondering, " Where is God today?".
Some times we are up, some times we are down!
Some times is BLAZE and sometimes its SHADE!
But the Good News is God has promised us in His word that, "...ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THEM THAT LOVE GOD, TO THEM WHO ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE"- Romans 8:28
So whether is YELLOWS or BLUES- One thing is sure! If we love God and know we are called according to His purpose, not ours.....Then we can beam on the inside that it is all under control and would eventually work out for our good!
