Here is great information from Catherine Ponder to transform the most difficult scenarios:
The word loss literally means “destruction,” and the thought of loss held in the mind is certainly a destructive one. If you cling to the thought of loss, it will ruin your health, take away your prosperity and destroy your peace of mind as well as personal happiness.
Since you have held to the thought of loss, you have also held to the problems it caused. So the thought of loss has continued to haunt you, bringing increased destruction and apparent loss into your life. A powerful way to overcome the thought of loss and its consequences is to remind yourself of this great truth:
“There is no loss in Spirit. You cannot lose your good. When it seems you have lost your good, it is because your good has changed form! Remember that there can be no loss in any phase of nature. The elements of nature merely change their form. When your good seems to leave you – to fly out the window – let it go. That is good you have outgrown. Then watch for new good to come in the door.”
A belief in present and future fulfillment blots out previous beliefs in loss.
God’s rich supply is all around you universally, as well as innately within you, as talents and abilities and ideas longing for expression. But that rich supply and substance must be contacted and used. Your mind is your connecting link with it. Your attitudes, your mental concepts, beliefs and outlook are your connecting links with God’s rich substance and your access to it. God can only do for you what He can do through you, by means of your thoughts and ideas which lead to your actions. Thus, prosperous thinking opens the way to prosperous results.
If you want to enjoy more prosperity and success in life, consciously, boldly and deliberately take hold of your thoughts and feelings and redirect them toward prosperity and success. Dare to choose and radiate outwardly through your thinking what you truly want to experience in life, rather than to get bogged down in what you don’t want or the moment. These conditions can change as quickly as you can change your thinking about them.
“I AM NOT DISCOURAGED. I AM PERSISTENT. I GO FORWARD. I AM DETERMINED TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS IN GOD’S OWN WONDERFUL WAY FOR ME.”
Keep looking up, because that’s where miracles come from.

When you want to give something of real value to another, give your gentle and focused attention. When you seek to develop true understanding, listen with your heart and your eyes.
You build lasting relationships and intimacy and create great value by paying attention and being here. When lecturing, pleading and arguing fail to carry your point across, giving your attention very likely will.
Yes, it can be difficult to give your full attention in a fast-moving world that is filled with distractions. And yet, the more distractions there are, the more precious and valuable your attention becomes.
Give something to others that is one hundred percent you and go total. Give the gift of your gentle and focused attention and do your best.
There are people around you yearning to be heard, seen, acknowledged, recognized, loved and appreciated. By truly paying attention, you enrich your life as well as theirs.
Even if you have nothing else to give, you can always give your focused attention. It will be surely welcomed and treasured as it brings real light to the world.
And just maybe, you will feel God’s presence and grace. Miracles are possible……they happen when you are here to experience them.

One day the man decided to quit…
He quit his job, his relationship, his spirituality… “I wanted to quit my life.” He went to the woods to have one last talk with God. “God”, he said, “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”
His answer surprised him… “Look around”, God said, “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?” “Yes”, he replied. When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water. The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo.
In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. “But I did not quit on the bamboo,” God said. In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed. “I would not quit,” God said.
Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth.Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant. But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle. God said to man, “Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots. I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you. Don’t compare yourself to others.” God said, “The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern … Yet, they both make the forest beautiful.”
“Your time will come,” God said to him. “You will rise high! “How high should I rise?” he asked. How high will the bamboo rise?” God asked in return. “As high as it can?” he questioned. “Yes,” God said, “Give me glory by rising as high as you can.” The man left the forest and brought this story.
A happy and meaningful life requires your continuous presence and creativity. It does not happen by chance. It happens because of your choices and actions. Each day you are given new opportunities to choose and act and, in doing so, you create your own unique journey.
