Life has a way of humbling you
Life has a way of challenging you
Life has a way of growing you
Life has a way of strengthening you
Life has a way of teaching you
It's not merely what you go through in life but how you handle what happens
How do you handle life's pressures and challenges?
It seems like when things are going well life is considered to be good but when challenges come, we crack under pressure. It's when these challenges arise that we get to see what we got stored up in us to see how we handle the situation we're faced with. It's important in these moments to allow yourself to feel what you feel, go through the emotions and feelings but don't make your home there
One thing I am learning as I pray out and sings songs about this life not being my own but belonging to God is that life is short.
I was at my nephews track meet this past weekend and the announcer announced a record that was held back in 2002 ,and in that moment I realized that was twenty years ago! I was just graduating High School and thought I was living my best life!.
Life is short and no matter how long we live it goes by so fast. We can't be deceived thinking we have time to live for Christ, enjoy our loved ones, carry out the assignment and purpose God has for us because tomorrow is not promised and life appears for a moment then boom you look up and it's gone.
Who or what controls your life? Is it you? Your feelings/emotions? Media? Politics? Things?
A Christians worldview in short is simply how we view life. I've been challenged this past week while taking classes, to begin learning about my own personal worldview. As a believer this worldview stems from the Creator, the creation and His plan. Learning how God intended things to be, how they are and how they will be in the future is what my personal worldview is based on as a believer in Christ Jesus.
One fact to consider is that, brokenness, sickness, death and evil exists. It rains on the just and the unjust. We as believers are not exempt from life's challenges.
Genesis 3 explains that this void and emptiness is a result of human rebellion against God. It is because of rebellion that sin, death, and violence exists (as demonstrated by the first children of Adam and Eve).
No matter what you go through or even what you did, this is not who you are. We can find hope in knowing that because of the fall of man, we still have a hope and a future!
Genesis 3:15 promises that though the serpent had led humanity into sin, God would bring about a redeemer to destroy the power of sin and death, which was a result of humanity's rebellion!
The next time you face life, reflect back on your personal worldview. What is defining how to move through life? Ask God to reveal to you His perfect plan and allow yourself to rest in that truth
There is much we can learn about life through life. Submit yourselves to God, resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7).
Let's Glow through what we Go through
