All I really wanted to do was crawl into bed but I had things that had to be done, I had no choice but to keep going. During that time though, I laid in my bed and thought to myself how maybe that phrase isn’t one I should be using. It’s such an easy term to throw out but in all reality it wasn’t fair. I was movinginto a beautiful new home; I was given a blessing, who was I to be cursing this blessing? And heyon the plus I dropped a couple pounds, what woman doesn’t like that? Despite wanting total control of the situation, I was brought back to reality very quickly thatI cannot control everything. As much as we think we are in control of things, we aren’t. Insteadof focusing on the bad, maybe focus on the good that comes from every bad situation.The Valley is in need of rain, and the lack of has caused many crops not to grow, or grow to their potential.
Our plants look dull and in need of life. It may seem that nothing is going as plannedand nothing is going right and it is just not fair. But somehow you find a way to just keep going.You find ways to make it work, or you just know it is not going to work and move on to the nexttask.You just keep going.Just as our plants look dull and in need of life, sometimes the same goes for us. Sometimes weneed that rain - God - in order to bring us back to life. It is so easy to get caught up in our ownexpectations that we tend to forget that it is not our expectations that we need to live up to, it’sGod’s. So if you are having a difficult time in life right now, try to sit back and count your blessingsand stop focusing on the bad. For every troubled time sprouts a blessing. You must keep going,because God will bless you for being faithful.
Not everything is meant to work out and although itmay not seem fair to us at the time, our God is fair and just and he will help you succeed. Sometimesfair doesn’t mean not getting what you want, it is what you need. You must keep the faith.God gave you this life, and we never know when it will end. Don’t let the bad gain control of yourattitude or put a damper on your day. Things will never go exactly as you had planned so don’twaste your time thinking about what could have been. Instead, focus on the now and the future.Enjoy the life God gave you.Bad will come and go, it never sticks around forever - unless you allow it to. The choice is yours.
