God never told us life would be easy. In fact, He states in the 23rd Psalms that there will be days when we will walk through the "Valley of the Shadow of Death". That sounds like a not-so-friendly place.
I no longer view life by how many times I fall anymore. I consider the opportunities to get up, ONE MORE TIME, instead. We will always have a bump in the road to negotiate through.
Look how Jesus states it in this scripture: "I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NLT.
As a father who has had the horror of losing a child, I can tell you that God is always there. That He still has a job for us to do on this earth. AND...He will never leave us nor forsake us.
My prayer for all of us is that we make this world a better place. We help others and share the Gospel with all mankind. That we learn to overcome evil and treat the less fortunate with the respect they deserve.
I'm learning. I don't have it all worked out. But, I am getting up. One more time. If I can ever help, please reach out to me at Hisoutpouring.com. Blessings to all that read this edition of my blog.
