You’ve heard of Murphy’s Law: If anything can go wrong, it can, will, and usually at the worst possible time. Your car will break down when you have no money and you need to take your child to hospital. That’s how life is. When hard times hit, it is so easy for us to lose hope and feel as if God has forgotten us. If today you feel like you are going through a storm, take a breath and remind yourself that that too shall pass. Sometimes life gets too hard and it feels as if things will never get any better.  But the good news is that that is just a trick of the mind because things usually do get better.

Life always knows exactly what we need, what we are ready for, and when we are prepared to receive it. We are usually so busy looking behind or ahead, we miss the flow of life passing right before our eyes. Fear, anxiety, guilt, and shame fog our vision and cause us to miss the point, the lesson, and the blessing. Let us remember that right now is a blessing no matter how difficult it feels.  In fact, God promises great blessings to those that stay faithful and persevere through the hard times…

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those that love him.”  -James 1:12. So no matter whatever situation you have to deal with today, just remember that it too shall pass.
