When Life Happens
Life is not always easy, comfortable or pleasant.
We will probably all have our share of disappointments, sadness, injustice, loss, pain, unexpected realities and discomfort. Some of these experiences may be self-inflicted but many others may not be. There are things in life that are so difficult that they are hard to accept. Other moments may make no sense at all or seem like there are no answers for them.
However, in the midst of it all, or in time, somehow the experience has a way of teaching, showing, or reminding us of things that we may have forgotten, never realized about ourselves (or others), couldn’t see, or didn’t want to face or do until later.
No matter the challenge, no matter the road, no matter the situation, please know that:
· You are loved
· You will get through this
· You are not alone
· This too shall past
· God know right where you are
It is so important to be mindful that someone around us may be having a difficult time. As a result, may we all do our part to:
· Be there and make time for others in a way that is beneficial
· Love on somebody who really needs it from us
· Listen more than we talk
· Be the help that we’d need to receive if the tables were turned
2 Corinthians 1:4 “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”
Have a great week…on purpose!
