Hebrews 13:8 New International Version (NIV)Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
It's important to know that Jesus walked this earth just like you and me. The disciples who followed him and the one who betrayed him. His attitude was everything and he would cry out to his father (GOD). We don't know what he actually went through except for what we read. We do know he carried a good attitude and went about helping others. We do know that God used his life to do the impossible things on earth and miracles took place. We do read that he went away (Heaven) so one day we could live there too. Life is so short and we need to keep a good attitude in life.
I open my door this morning to hear birds singing. There is no wind and will be a beautiful day. Yet, I remembered where I was last year and felt myself getting sad. I was sitting by a pool at the lake house with family. This year I'm sitting at home and things change. I might be taking my husband back to the Emergency room, because he is in so much pain from a sciatica nerve. I'm not complaining just showing how life changes. I learned along time ago and we go through different seasons of life. You hang onto the precious memories of family at fun times. Keeping a good attitude through sad seasons and know that God is able to handle this day just fine.
GOD IS ABLE ~
What do you face today that you just need God to handle? How can you let go of something that troubles your heart? How can you overcome that hurdle of sickness or loss of a loved one? I know only one answer and that will be through the power of name of Jesus plus good friends/family. When I was 18 and my dad died, I felt so alone. I was mad at God for taking him. Then a year later, I started feeling this pull to God and began to open my understanding about life and death. I don't know why some people die so young and others so old. I know that the Bible says that there is a time for all things. So I have learned to trust the Lord with all my heart. Sure there are days of frustration and wonder, but I never wonder if God is there anymore. I've grown into knowing he is just here all the time and forever!
My thoughts and prayers with you, your family and friends. Life changes and so do we. Change into a person with a better attitude and not bitter. Bitter will dry your bones to sorrow and better will grow you into a new day of thanksgiving. Sure there is a season to mourn and I still have days of missing my mom, my dad and my brother. I know the deep pain of it hurting so bad you just can't cry anymore. Yet, tears still come. I also know the deep peace that only God can give while going through anything.
My attitude not only changed my life, but those around me. I feel that someone needs to see JESUS through our lives and it's okay to cry. It's okay not to understand and it's okay to be okay again. It's okay to smile again and share life with those around us. Never stop living! My mom was in her early 40's when my dad died and she stopped living for the next 40 years. Such a sad story but true. Never stop living.
