Blessed Or Deprived? – Something that we often think about..

We are Blessed. Alhumdolillah.

Sometime I consider myself as the happiest and luckiest person of this world who has everything that he wished for. While at times, my high level of excitement enters into the darkness of negativity and thoughts of pity, guilt and regret get more powerful than that of positive ones. Being a human, most of the times we ignore blessings of God and instead of being thankful and feel blessed about our belongings and powers, we indulge in complaining of what we don’t have in life. At the same time, we think of things that in our opinion we deserve and ignore all things that we have that we don’t deserve.

Life brings smiles and pain simultaneously to test our patience and strength of character. Good character motivates us to be thankful and blessed while bad character empowers our negative energy and make us feel sad and deprived. If we look closely, we get to know that we all have options in life. When God closes one door of opportunity, He opens another one. This may happen a bit late than what we expect, therefore we get impatient and consider ourselves as the unluckiest person on the planet.

If we look around us, we all have options in life to do and not to do. There is no compulsion to do what we are doing at the moment. If we realize that God is driving our vehicle of life, we may not feel unhappy or impatient. Instead we receive all the blessings and mercy of God with open arms and warm heart and when He takes away something from us, we would think it happened on the wish of God therefore, it should have happened this way and we won’t complain. Whatever happens in life is for good that we often realize later. This thought alone gives so much positive energy. Try it next time in your dark phase.

Blessings be upon You.
