We all have our discouraged days, when things do not go well. Your children come back home failing lessons at school even after studying hard and having really done their best, in fact you even helped them through their studies. Or as a mother you fail in your household work; the children are so hard to control.
Or maybe you have been wronged or angered and try as you could, you having difficulty being gentle, kind and patient with the world around you. Or maybe you return home after a long day at work, unhappy, disturbed, defeated or discouraged. You have done your best, but you feel that you have failed.
Life is not always easy for anyone who strives to live at their best. Work is hard; challenges are heavy; responsibility is great. Life’s competition is fierce, there are people trying to pull at you from every corner.
It is hard to live blissfully amid the irritations that touch continually at most tender points. It is hard to live lovingly and charitably when you see so much inequity and wrong, and sometimes you must yourself endure hate and injustice from people around you.
It is hard to put in so much long hours into work and very few time for rest, earning so little that you can hardly pay your bills and still be able to give yourself any treat. No wonder we sometimes get discouraged and lose heart.
Folks no matter what you are going through reading this, I want you to realize that we have the presence and actual help of God in all our experiences. We don’t necessarily find God only in the good times, when we have everything going our way.
There have been so many wonderful stories of people who found God with them in prisons, in situations of poverty, in times of hardships etc and in the process discovered the vision to lift them out of gloom and doom to light and joy. Folks God is ever standing ready to give you victory and guide you to success today.
Live your greatest life!
