As a kid, I enjoyed math.

As you may recall, for some division problems, there’s a number called a remainder. For example, 7 divided by 2 equals 3, remainder 1. Eight divided by 3 equals 2, remainder 2.

A remainder is what you have left.

With respect to life, you may have lost some things in your life along the way—perhaps some time, or money, or relationships, or opportunities.

But even if you’ve lost some things, you certainly haven’t lost everything.

So instead of focusing solely on what you’ve lost, focus on what you have left. Despite what you lost, thank God for the time, energy, resources, and opportunities you have left.
