God:allowed His son to die for us…..
Isaiah 53:5 (KJV) “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed”.
When you have a load to carry or the trials of life gets to be numerous, and you get to thinking it might be more than you can deal with, we can get to feeling sorry for ourselves; we tend to think that what is happening at that moment is only happening to us and no one has ever gone through what you are experiencing.
It is fine to feel all bluesy and down, that’s all part of life; if anyone is upbeat 100% of the time, then I would have to inquire on the root cause. The good thing about what we go through in life is that we don’t have to go it alone, ever. In this big structure which was created, God has a plan and an intention that we never walk this road alone.
We might never see the support system or probably get trapped into thinking there is not one readily available, but there is always a way out. Not negating the heavenly resources at our finger tip either: Jesus died and His spirit is within us as a guide, comforter and sustainer even when things get to the roughest edge of intolerance.
But my friend, whatever life throws at us and I know it can be many at time, borrow from that person with the optimistic attitude and remember all that Jesus went through willingly and as directed from His Father, so that you and I could have the assistance with dealing with our strives in this life. It’s worth it after a while; I know this because I have lived it.
