Highs and Lows

Life is a roller coaster. If you think differently, well, you're wrong mistaken. Unexpected blessings and trials come into our life daily and whether we want to acknowledge the good, the bad and the ugly it's up to us. For the most part I'm a glass half full kind of girl. I like to see the best in people, the best in circumstances and even the best in the bad times. But it doesn't change the fact that there are bad times. It just changes the way we look at those times.

God's Word says:

John 16:33-
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

He's already taken care of our troubles...He has overcome life, in death, in sickness, in health, in wealth, in poverty, in persecution, in honor, in love and in war, in certain times and uncertainty, in faith and in doubt. He has overcome every thing that seeks to consume us. He says...."have hope, take heart, be encouraged! I've overcome it all". He says..."grab hold of my peace....the kind that surpasses all understanding...the perfect peace that keeps your heart and mind tuned into Christ....that's the kind of peace you need to grab and hold tightly to get through the roller coaster times of life.

He's got this roller coaster ride and the next and the next and the one after that too. Why not make room beside you for Him to come along side. Grab His hand and hold on for life....eternal life...abundant life...full life? It's really the only life worth living anyway!
