There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle–Albert Einstein.
Life is a game of gains and losses. What we gain today will be lost tomorrow and what we lose today will be gained tomorrow. Since it is a natural phenomenon of life, we should not give much importance to what is lost. Crying over what is lost is a useless exercise because it doesn’t help in any way to get back what is lost. In fact, what we need to do is to accept the fact and work hard to gain back what is lost. One may fail in an exam. If he grows depressed and disgusted over his failure, nobody profits from it. On the contrary, what he has to do is to study the various factors that led to the failure. A close evaluation and understanding of such factors will help him to make the necessary amendments and continue his journey to success with more enthusiasm and vigour. Whatever is lost has lost forever. Therefore, think on how to compensate for the loss.
We ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will, with all the wisdom and understanding that his Spirit gives. Then you will be able to live as the Lord wants and will always do what pleases him. Your lives will produce all kinds of good deeds, and you will grow in your knowledge of God. (Colossians 1:9)
