"That was a big mistake!"
"I shouldn't have done that! That was a mistake!"
But was it really?!
I am mean, maybe it was a mistake, intentional or not.
But maybe sometimes we look at it wrong.
Does God consider it a mistake? Is he looking down upon you, glaring at you because you did it wrong again. Because you went ahead and went with a decision and now aren't feeling so certain about it. You question yourself and decide it was a mistake. But was it? Did God say it was a mistake?
Maybe it wasn't a mistake. Maybe you are right where God wants you. It might not be your dream world, your dream idea of fun, it might not have turned out exactly how you had hoped. But a mistake? No.
We don't always know exactly why some thing happens. We can't always see exactly what God is up to each step of the way. But is it right to always call it a mistake when you aren't where you think you ought to be, because maybe you are where God wants you to be.
Just maybe, you are exactly where God has called you to be. And God doesn't make mistakes!
Maybe it's not a mistake. Maybe all you need is a different perspective and a different attitude. The attitude can change everything.
