I sit down and write again. I sit down and eat again.
I change a diaper. again.
I wake up before I want to again.
I read a book. again. I watch a move. Again.
SO much of life is just a repeat of what you’ve already done.
So much of life is spent doing the same thing again and again.
But how many times do we call that ‘again’ something positive or pleasant?
Are most of the repeats stuck in an unhealthy negative moment?
again. so much work.
again. who would ever choose to do this so many times?
that is how the agains tend to leap in our brain.
how about instead of moping or whining we replace those again and woe-is-me thoughts with
Again! I get to feed my family again!
Again! I get to praise God in this place again!
Again! I get to bear witness to his glory in this situation again!
Instead of thinking of those agains as burdens or things we’d rather not do thing, think of them as ‘a gain‘.
again is a gain. because we get to try to improve.
again is a gain. because we get to repeat the thought over and maybe better.
again is a gain. because a gain is a blessing.
again is a gain.
how about that?
Five Minute Friday is at Lisa Jo’s! Join us there for a fun free write and link-up!
What has your ‘again’ been these days? How could you turn it into ‘a gain’ instead? :)
