In life, we all have our ups and downs. There are times that get to be more difficult than others, ones of testing, struggles with relationships, temptations and others where our character is being developed and our faith in God in being strengthened. At times, you may feel like your taking 2 steps forwards and 3 steps back and not really improving at all in life. You are probably thinking something like, "My life is horrible, why does it have to be this way? What is wrong with everyone? What ever I seem to do turns into something bad!" Have you been feeling that way lately? Well, guess what? You don't have to feel that way at all! Now I'm sure your wondering why you don't have to feel that way anymore and how things can get any better than what they are if you have tried your best and you think its others in your life that is causing lots of your trouble and pain. Look on the bright side, God doesn't want you to go through all this!
God doesn't want our life to be like a roller coaster ride that goes up really high and then you drop down really fast. He wants us to bring us to a place in life where we are stable and growing closer to Him. Jesus said, "I am the vine. You are the branches. If you abide in me, you will bear much fruit and your fruit will remain." If you keep your eye fixed on God, keep trusting Him, He will bring you through your everyday life! But we need to make sure we don't give up or we will start to think that life will always be like this and then nothing will improve or change. We need to work on improving our life and not worry about others and what they do. God can deal with them. Keep your attention towards God and what He wants from you! You will be on a jounrey of moving forward into a life filled with God's blessings and great opportunies He has prepared and waiting for you!
