With so much bad news out there today, its very nice and refreshing to report some good news for a change. One of my readers read one of my blogs ,(Brenda) took some of my advice and has given her marriage another chance. Now after two months the marriage is doing well, she is happy, her children happy and she is glad that she has given her marriage of over 10 years another chance. I am very proud of her, because she could have taken the easy route, by doing what so many Americans do today, which is give up or get a divorce. She is a very brave woman and truly what the bible speaks of when it says, When a man finds a wife, he has found a good thing. I have found in life its very easy to give up when times get hard or when the people we are involved with fail or do something that may hurt us. The question many of us should ask ourselves is, What if God was like us and given up on us when we sinned or have done something wrong? Would we like that or how would we deal with an unforgiving God? Thank God known of us have to answer that question, because he is loving, kind, forgiving and he is able to turn a dark day into something brighter. Praise Jesus!
The question that has been asked of me many times is, "How do I stay on track, when the rest of the world, is getting harder to live in, has given up or bought in to all the bad news they hear everyday?" My answer to that is to never loose your determination and to always remain focused. When I say being focused or determined, I mean being that way with every aspect of your life. Which means one should never forget about their physical or mental health, their personal life , to always keep an open mind and to have their own personal relationship with God. As I have grown older, I have found that its easy to stay focused on one thing, but harder to stay focused on many things. In life to be successful one has to be focus on many things to be a success or happy. Not only does one have to be a good father, mother, worker or owner of a business, but also a good person. Being a good person in today's world is hard and a hugh challenge. Why? Because there are people in the world that thrive on tearing others down, criticizing the weak and relishing when others fail. Your children will test your patience, your spouse will do something wrong or something that may hurt you, there are people in the world that will always be evil and try to invade your privacy or tear down your world. That is why its so important to hang in there, stay determined or focused , to never give up on your dreams and go after all of your desires. Why? Because if you can survive the storm, there is sunshine awaiting you tomorrow, so hang in there.Remember this you can't be on mans side to day and on Gods side tomorrow. One must always remain focused God first, themselves second and then family or friends.With strong prayer God will always have your back and will always be there to protect you, in your time of need. "Hang In There" and in time everything you want or ask for will be given to you with the grace of God. "Hang In There", God Our Father in Heaven is always by your side!!!
May God bless you,
