Living is a blessed process because God is with us every moment. Our one great power is the ability to choose our thoughts. As we think, so we experience. Choosing thoughts is a skill that takes time to develop, and we make mistakes. Think back to a hard, harsh experience that resulted from a series of poor choices. Over time, didn't good come out of it? Eventually, we learn to let God's qualities express through us, and living becomes better and better. And we are beloved of God even when we are choosing badly.
