Life isn’t always a bouquet of roses or a barrel of laughs.  Life can get HARD and we go through some tough trials along our journey.

Circumstances change.  Maybe you have been skipping along in life, going about your merry way, when BOOM…there it is!!!  An obstacle is in your path that really messes with that planned and predictable life you had set up.  What do you do in your uncertainty?  Well, if you are wise, you go to the word of God for direction. There are sure to be golden nuggets of wisdom found there that will speak to your heart and guide you through to the other side of whatever you are struggling with.  All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.  2 Timothy 3:16

People change.  We have relationships that we are certain will last forever.  In an instant, that can change.  A harsh word, an untruth spread in gossip, or an unspoken apology can bring a rift that is hard to mend.  What do you do in your pain and regret?  Go to God’s word and gain His wisdom for your life.  He will teach you about forgiveness.  Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him?  As many as seven times?”  Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.”  Matthew 18:21-22.     He will teach you about loving others.  He will help you restore what the enemy has taken from you.

Life is full of changes.  We should never get to “comfortable” where we are, because the devil is out there.  He wants to bring destruction and devastation to our lives.  He wants to steal our joy and rob us of our faith.  We must always stand guard against the evil one.  We must always seek after the things of God.  We must always remember that His word is our greatest weapon.  It never changes, it never fails, it endures always.  The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.  Isaiah 40:8.
