Pain Into Praise

on 3 October 2010

Life is tough- there’s no denying this. Just when we think we’ve got one issue under control, 4 more rise up to take its place. Remember that ‘Whack A Mole’ game? How you could never get all the moles beaten down at the same time? That’s what life is like sometimes.

We can choose to let this get us down; we can choose to be beaten down by the stress of life. Because, you see, if we are destroyed by this life it is our choice. We have a way out- we have a means of relief.

We can choose to cling to God, to cry out and throw ourselves into His arms.

There’s more than enough room for all of us; all we have to do is reach out.

We have to praise Him in the storm of life….

    You are so right, I love the way you phrased this Emma,

    ‘We can choose to cling to God, to cry out and throw ourselves into His arms.

    There‚Äôs more than enough room for all of us; all we have to do is reach out’

    The trick is, purely because we are human, is remembering God is there, we sometimes forget!

    Thanks for the post your a gem.

    • You are right! It is hard to remember that God is there sometimes; but it’s a reaction we should work hard at training ourselves to have.

      It is great to have such a faithful Saviour, is it not?

      Thanks so much for commenting. :) -MissW
