I came across this quote and it sounded so simple, so inspiring, but somehow it just irritates me. Maybe if I meditate on the truth in it, I will feel better.
I wonder if anybody else has these meetings in their head late at night. Out of the blue, the weight of your life closes in.
Sometimes I feel like things will never get better, when I know they will. I have lived long enough to know, intellectually, everything is subject to change. I also know you can't believe everything you think and feelings lie.
Some days, it's easier to stay optimistic than others. Often, I believe there is hope, then it is dashed. At the same time, as I look back over the years, I recall many other situations I felt would go on forever and they did not.
1 Corinthians 10:13 "You have been put to no test but such as is common to man: and God is true, who will not let any test come on you which you are not able to undergo; but he will make with the test a way out of it, so that you may be able to go through it."
It's true. Everybody has tests and trials in their lives. Just as the stars shine brighter in the darkness, extreme pressure produces diamonds and extreme heat purifies gold. I am not different than any other human with burdens to bear and challenges to overcome.
See that? Talking it through, even if it's with yourself, helps. If it's with God it elevates. Dear God, I am getting in the back seat, wake me when we're there.
Fantasizing the freedom from care for He cares for me.
