“You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.” A young lady who has been given a 2% chance to live said this.
Too many are waiting for circumstances to be just right to start living, to begin to enjoy life. What we learn as we get older is that there will always be something that can get better in our lives. So, we learn to enjoy life as we are working on things. At times we will be sailing along and we get hit with a curve ball — something happens or goes wrong, a problem arises. That should not derail us from enjoying the life that God gave us.
This is a poem written on a basement wall in Nazi Germany during WWII. “I believe in the sun, even when it is not shining. I believe in love, even when I don’t feel it. I believe in God, even when He is silent.” If we believe God is with us and will never leave or forsake us, then we will always have hope.
The satisfied life:
Setbacks will happen to us, so how we manage them will determine the successes we experience in life. We need to live the satisfied life that Jesus died for us to live, regardless of the circumstances we face.
We are overcomers, so overcome. Be and do what God’s word teaches us to do, then you will experience the peace and contentment that only God can give.
Just a thought,
