We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident of hope salvation. And this hope will not lead us to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because He has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. Romans 5:3-5
It is hard this thing called life. And sometimes we forget there is hope. Because, at times, I view myself as the disappointment. To Mark. To the kids. To my house. To my pets. To my friends. To my church. and mostly TO MYSELF.
But I am not.
God has forgiven me before I mess up. He loves me no matter what I do. or Say. He is always there to hand me hope. He is there to guide me. To show me how to live this life.
At times, I have to remind myself not to give up. or give in. I have to remember that I must move forward…… with God’s lead. Not my own. When I do face a problem, God is there loving me through it. He makes me want to move forward. He is the reason I have the strength to get out of bed each morning. It is God’s love that fuels my motivation and satisfies my soul.
So, when life happens…… say “Bring it on.” Because God is by your side.
