It’s all up hill. At least that is how it feels sometimes! This heat is something, isn’t it?! It seems to be getting everyone down…making life a little more difficult….causing health problems….slowing us down. Life is hard enough as it is. And just when you think you are catching a break and things are getting better, something else comes to slam you back down to the bottom. And then you think, there is no place to go but up from here.
But that is life, isn’t it? A journey up? Jesus said, “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
This life is all about trouble and what we do with it. Will we become discouraged and then take it out on those around us? Or will we remember that Jesus loves us and knows our trouble. He is with us and will help us. When the bad days come…and they will come, God will bring us through.
So, keep plugging away at that hill….and keep your eyes on Jesus! 🙂
