Misery Is Optional

There may be times when life has taught you lessons you didn’t want to learn or shown you things you didn’t want to see. But that’s to be expected because our world is sinful, and as a result, you will experience heartache, sadness, and failures. No one has ever lived on this earth without shedding a tear. Pain is inevitable in this world, but misery is optional. How you react to life’s difficulties reveals your character. You can choose to put your full faith and trust in God or wallow in self-pity bathing in a bathtub of tears. The choice is yours. Whatever challenge you are facing, however brokenhearted you are, cling to Jesus. There is never a trial that you will have to face alone, for God is right there beside you. He will give you the strength and courage to face each moment. Even broken things can be blessings if you allow God to do the mending. With Jesus, there is joy after heartache! Even broken crayons can still color a beautiful picture. Sometimes our most difficult circumstances can bring the greatest blessings. Don’t lose hope because Jesus is your hope! The only way to maneuver through this life’s ups and downs is to rely on God for strength to face each day. The Bible says in Psalm 28:7, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.” At the end of your life, what really matters isn’t all the times you failed, all the suffering you experienced, or the tears you cried. It’s not what you went through but what God carried you through! Text: John 16:33, 1 Peter 5:9-10, Psalm 34:17-19, 2 Corinthians 4:8-9
