BE HAPPY AND OPTIMISTIC AS YOU GO THROUGH THE TRIALS OF LIFE
What would you think if
someone told you that starting tomorrow you could spend the rest of your life rocking in a
chair, and all responsibilities taken from you. Would you be happy? Would you learn
anything? Would you be of service to your fellow man?
God has provided different life
experiences for each of His children. As we go through the trials of life, God has a
purpose for each one. We learn to have faith and trust in God. We increase our
understanding and learn the Truths of God's Great Goodness. We gain self-esteem and see
the difference between good and evil.
We should be happy and optimistic
because God is preparing us to come live with Him in Heaven.
Look at life as an adventure to
learn and develop those things which last forever. Our time on earth is short so make the
most of it.
John 16:33 - "I told you
these things so that you can have peace in me. In this world you will have trouble, but be
brave! I have defeated the world."
James 1:2-4 - My brothers and
sisters, when you have many kinds of troubles, you should be full of joy, because
you know that these troubles test your faith, and this will give you patience. Let your
patience show itself perfectly in what you do. Then you will be perfect and complete and
will have everything you need.
Prayer: Dear Father help me
to have hope and joy as I endure the trials of the world. Amen
