#381: Tired, But Still Believing

Friday, July 23, 2010

Life has been extremely stressful lately. I have been exhausted physically and mentally. There are overwhelming problems with no positive resolution in sight. They have taken a toll.

Still, I believe things will get better and work themselves out. I don't know how or when but believe life can not keep on as it has for too much longer.

That is a tremendous benefit of positive thinking. Even though times are tough, there is always a hopeful feeling that circumstances will improve. Just the opposite of having a negative attitude, always thinking the worse and expecting it.

Let's admit that not one of us will have a life of constant fortune without problems or setbacks. To believe otherwise is naive. So, knowing that, how do we handle life when it constantly throws us curve balls?

Try digging deep down inside for the golden nugget that lies inside all of us, the kernel of belief that connects us with the the greater power of the universe. THAT will keep us fired up and, despite constant and continual hardships, will give us the positive foundation we need to keep going, to hang tough, to know that life's trials are temporary and that these, too, shall pass.

Yes, tribulations and challenges may wear us down and drain us of our energy, but they needn't sap us of our belief in a grand plan for our lives, one that will overcome immediate problems.

We need to keep believing, always.

    One thing we know; no matter what we go through, we are not alone. Jesus is always with us. I tend to forget that now and then, as a lot of us do, because we are human. Yet, isn't it awesome to know He is always by our side?

    Lou, it's like you can read my mind from FL to TX and then you blog about it! emoticon Here we are, only car we're sharing is in the shop with a whopping $530 bill, I forgot to pay a mortgage payment (how one does that, I don't know), have so many other bills fro surgery, etc., that sometimes, I just get so overwhelmed it seems it will never get better. It WILL get better! It's been worse before, and it will no doubt go back and forth until the Earth life is over. After all, isn't that a big part of life? If we had not troubles, we'd probably be dead! My faith is becoming stronger in tomorrow every time I get to the end of today, and I hope yours is, too. emoticon

    You are right everyone has set backs and disappointments. We can't stop unexpected things from happening, but we can change our attitude from negative to positive .It is best to have a positive attitude. emoticon

    Were we able to make life work on our own, we would never realize our need for our loving God. He is with us through every adversity and truly does take care of us in some amazing ways. For that I am most grateful.

    *hugs*

    The Bible says "Tribulation worketh patience." Perhaps you need a bit more patience? No matter what the trouble, HE sees the beginning from the end AND HE is STILL IN CONTROL!
