Everyone is looking for true joy and contentment in their lives, myself included. Throughout that journey though there are many hardships and times of suffering that we must go through in order to better appreciate that true joy when we find it. The old adage, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” is certainly appropriate but I certainly hope that one does not have to go to the brink of death in order to appreciate life.
God has blessed us with the opportunity to enjoy our lives on this earth each and every day and I hope that we all take advantage of that blessing before we find our true joy in heaven. The whole point of the Christian life is to find joy, but the attainment of true joy comes, in a sinful world, at the cost of some suffering but, you do not have to suffer alone, God was, is and always will be right there by our side. Remember, if you were the only person on this earth, He still would have died just for you. Amen!
Peace and Blessings.
