Life, the constant ups and downs of existence. A world that can be so full of trouble, struggle, stress and sadness, yet it is also beautiful, full of happiness, joy, wonder, hopes and dreams. Why does everyone always focus on the bad things going on in the world? They just ignore or don’t notice the good that is there. Why does the news always focus on horrible things that happen instead of showing the good around the world? Yes, there are bad things happening in the world, but that does not mean that should be the only thing that should be focused on.
Awhile ago I saw a video titled Reasons to smile in 2019 and they shared a bunch of wonderful things that had happened in the world, and I did happen to smile as I watched it. I realized how much I have been focusing on the bad things in the world instead of seeing all the good there is. I know that people have moments where they feel like there is no joy in the world, or maybe they are going through a tough time. And that’s alright if they are, there are mountains and valleys when it comes to life. Some people may be standing on the highest mountain, everything is well in their life, while someone else in the lowest valley and everything is not well in their life. Even though there are many unexpected twists and turns to life, God is always watching over us, ALL of us. No matter who you are, or what may have happened in your life, God will always be by your side.
Even though life is a temporary thing, and what happens after we die is unknown, we should try to enjoy life as much as we can. Even if it feels like all the lights in your life have gone out, do not fear, for someone who knows all will stay by your side. Wherever you are in life, the guardian of life itself, creator of existence, protector of all will always be by your side. No matter what situation you find yourself in, whether it is good or bad, someone will always watch over you.
There has been a question that has been bothering me for awhile; How do you know if God is speaking to you, and it is not just your own thoughts? I still don’t have the answer to that, though I know that God can speak through others, maybe I just don’t see it yet, that God is talking to me. Maybe I will realize it someday, Maybe God is even speaking through me… when I did not even realize it.
Anyways, for everyone who is struggling with something, you are not alone in your struggles, someone will always be with you through the good or bad. That’s a truth I hold on to, and I hope you will hear these words too.
Stay safe everyone 🙂
