God's Promises

Life ain't no cakewalk. If anyone says that it is, well, they straight up lying to you. Life is filled with ups and downs, rain and rainbows, and peaks and valleys. The good news is you never have to go through it alone. And if you do, that is your choice.
I could spend all day writing down God's promises but I want you to read about them for yourself. I think most people are so disappointed when adversity comes that they forget what that adversity means. First of all, God will never give you more than you can handle. Secondly, that "terrible ordeal" is just a sharpening tool to make you a better person when it is all over. Lastly, the end result will be something good no matter how badly packaged it came.
I realize, today, that if you aren't going up against something, you aren't getting any better, stronger, or wiser. When today is over, you can never get it back. If you are not better today than you were yesterday, you have wasted one of the most precious gifts God gives you---time. So don't pout and whine about how life ain't fair--cause it ain't. But Public Service Announcement: nothing you can do about it. Except maybe grow and ask God to make you better than the day before.
God promises you so much and most people never take advantage of things Jesus died to give them. Now that is really not fair...

Soli Deo Gloria,
