"Is the grass greener on the other side of the fence?"

Welcome to Dee's Thought's"

Thank you for joining me today. let me know your thoughts about this blog and I hope you are blessed.

Growing up on a farm it was a common sight to see cattle grazing in the distance enjoying a pasture of green grass. You would think they would be content with what they had wouldn’t you? The key word here being “green grass” .

 But, as I watched them grazing, sure enough, there would be a single cow with her head through the fence trying to get at the grass on the other side of the fence. Now that grass on the other side did not necessarily look better, in fact, it really looked worse. So why was cow working so hard to get the grass on the other side of the fence?

For some reason the cow believed that that grass would be  better eating than what it already had. So, here is our thought for the day, “Is The Grass Really Greener On The Other Side Of The Fence”?

It is easy isn’t it for us to believe that what someone else has is better than what we have. Their life is better than mine, their house is better than mine and before you know it I am coveting their things. Suddenly, my things and my life are not good enough anymore. Doesn’t this sound like the cow at the fence? I once heard that if you think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, spend some time watering your own grass!

Let us not forget that more often than not, How we view the color of grass is only in our perception of it. It may look one way to me but another way to you. We sometimes go to great lengths looking for something better than what we already have, sticking our heads through a fence not really knowing what is on the other side.

But, If we are not careful, in our efforts to get to the other side, we ignore the barbed wire and the thickets that are in our way and In the end, all we find on the other side are brown weeds.

We have all we need in Jesus! And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

Blessings and see you next week
