Not every day will be a good day. Throughout the journey, you’ll experience tests of all kinds. There will be days when it seems like nothing is going your way. It will seems as though your world is upside down.
But be encouraged friend, don’t be dismayed. Our God, the Creator of the universe, can turn the tides in your favor. He can take your situation and make it work out all for your good.
You see, it’s the bad times that are meant to make us stronger, wiser and more equipped for the road ahead.
The truth is we wouldn’t appreciate the sunshine without a little rain. We wouldn’t appreciate the good times without the bad.
When your world is turned up side down, when it seems life itself is shook off the very foundation, know that in due time it will all work out for your greater good.
Without the mess, you won’t have a message. Without the test, you won’t have a testimony. Your world may get shaken but it won’t fall apart. You may bend but you won’t break. Remember, God is on the throne. He’s in complete control and He has your best interests at heart.
Be of good cheer. Jesus overcame the world! When your world seems upside down, know that it’s not too much that Jesus can’t fix.
I love how 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 puts it. It says “We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
Remember, that you are loved. Things will get better. God is working behind the scenes so that you come out on top. Your better days are ahead. Be of good courage. Get your hopes up. And look forward to your future with hope and expectation as you charge forth on your journey of life!
