What we are NOT

There are a lot of things that I am and am not. What we declare that we are and are not, matters.

“We are hard pressed on every side, but we are NOT crushed; we are perplexed, but we’re NOT in despair; we are persecuted, but we are NOT abandoned; we are struck down, but we are NOT destroyed.”

We like to thank God for what we have. Many times we thank Him for who we’ve become or how far our family members have come in life. Have you ever thought about thanking God for what you are NOT? Sometimes we find ourselves declaring only the things we are at the moment: Hard pressed, perplexed, persecuted, and struck down. Sure, we’re gonna be burdened, strained, bewildered, baffled, harassed, annoyed, afflicted, affected and hit or struck by stuff. However, look at what we are NOT: Crushed, in despair, abandoned, or destroyed. We’re not pulverized, completely hopeless, unwanted, left behind, ruined, or ended by the stuff.

Know what you are and what you are not.

I am many things! But today I am thankful for what I am NOT!
