Why is life so hard? Why is life so full of negative? I do not know. I do know that God’s Word says that the sun will shine and the rain will fall on both the righteous and the unrighteous. I know this time on earth is an opportunity for us to bring glory to God and that we are to “consider it pure joy when we face trials of many kinds” (James 1:2). Sometimes, it is very hard to do that but we must forge ahead anyway. The easy way out is no way out. Now is one of those times. It seems many of my own blood are out to extract as much pain as possible (never mind the world…). I am far from perfect; I have been selfish and immature and am only now learning these things. I guess better late than never but they are things are should have learned/grown out of twenty-five or more years ago. It is easy to blame circumstances but that is a cop out. Looking ahead with a positive attitude is so hard but so important. Proverbs 4:25 says “Let your eyes look straight ahead, fix your gaze directly before you.”. I heard it said once that it is ok to look back briefly for perspective but do not dwell on times past. Luke 9:60 says “Leave the dead to bury their own dead. But as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.” I have a terrible problem dwelling on the past and it must stop. It is incredibly depressing. If you do this, work on looking ahead as I am doing. Christ has already been victorious and we have every reason to look forward.
