Take heart and say thanks..

It’s ridiculous how much we think life sucks.  Funds are tight,  jobs are lost, friends come and go, loved ones die and somehow this equals the end of the world.  Well, it’s not the end.  You have to take heart, get back up and stay up. 

“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.”  John 16:33

So ultimately, life doesn’t really suck.  It’s where you seek understanding that makes sense of all the suckiness – which then you realize how thankful you really are for what life God has given you.  He has overcome, say thanks.

“Recalculating”

We seem to forget that our lives have already been mapped out… therefore anything outside of the “route” God has drawn for us,  is completely out of His will.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  Jeremiah 29:11

The plans we have made for ourselves, don’t come close to measuring up to the plans God has already made for us.  Now all we need to do is simply get on that path and stay on it.  Then everything else around us falls perfectly in place.
