I am so tired of folks who spend their lives depressed, sad, cranky, and in the dark. Jesus came so that we could have abundant life. What does that mean to you. It doesn’t mean life is perfect and we don’t always get our way but with God on our side how can anything be so bad? Life is too short and can be taken away in an instant. Live in the moment.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not posting this as a result of recent current events. I am speaking just in general for the “average joe.” I am not negating persons with terminal illnesses, traumatic plights that are not their faults but just everyday folks like me. Working mom wno cleans house, buys groceries, cooks, takes care of her family, etc. Why not see the glass as half full, not empty. Be gracious! Be positive! Be grateful! Life is flying by.
I’ve had my share of challenges in the past couple of years…My father passed away, we had to move out of our house, my sister’s fighting cancer, my best friend moved away, not to mention having adult children and teenage drama to deal with and major changes at work. That’s life, isn’t it?
If you are near or over 50, you realize how fast life goes by more and more every day. If you aren’t, heed my advice. Don’t be remorseful or regretful when you are older. Experience the trials and tribulations of life as an adventure. Have fun. Be flexible. Look for the good in everything because God is there. He’s got your back and will bless you as you are faithful.
I don’t know how anyone gets through the trials of life without the Lord’s guidance and comfort. When all else seems to fail. God is always there to pick you up and carry you forward.
