Life is Good!

Yes, life is good! Life should be good all the time. Life is what we make of it and how we choose to look at it. We must take the good with the bad because we don't really have a choice. I always say life is a roller coaster ride; there will be hills and there will be valleys. But if you can take the hard punches along the way, it will make the good times even better.

I also like to think of this saying ~ God will never give us more than we can handle. Sometimes we may not always agree with that statement but it's true if you think about it. You have endured hard times in life, but you made it through them. You may have been at the end of your rope, or at your wits end with life, but you survived through whatever it was you had to deal with. You may have felt like your world was going to end, but it didn't! Those are the times in life that make us appreciate the good and happy times even more. We all have our limits that we have been pushed to, or even pushed over at times, but with prayer and God's guidance, we have the ability to handle whatever comes our way. But only if we let Him in and let Him help us with our troubles. And not just help us, but take our troubles away from us. God never wants us to suffer, but the harder times in life do make us stronger. What doesn't kill you will make you stronger, a very true statement if you think about it.

Life is good because I choose to see the best of everyday and choose the positive aspects in everything. I love my life, and wouldn't trade it for anything! God has a plan for my life, and each and every person put here on this earth. There have been hard times in the past and even recently, but I always look for the silver lining in the cloud and roll with it. If I didn't, it would only get me down and that is not what the Lord wants for us in this world. He wants us to know He is always there for us and will be no matter what happens or what mistakes we make in life. Just ask Him for forgiveness and granted that you will be!

Remember to have at least one positive thought every day. Just one positive thought or action can erase all the other negative thoughts or feelings you have. You would be surprised at how different life could be if you choose to be happy and in positive spirits all the time. We all have our down moments and that is ok. Just remember don't fall so far in the rut that you can't pull yourself back out of it. We can always rely on the almighty God to help us, but we also have to rely on ourselves too. We choose our actions and our thoughts in life, so let's make them good experiences and have positive thinking! May God bless you and your family today and each day forward. It is truly life changing if you just accept His word into your life! And not just accept His word, but live it too! Until next time, God bless...
