Is Life Going to Be Hard?

by | Feb 6, 2012 | Encouraging

I had not joined my first company yet and they said work life was going to be hard.
I had not married yet and some others said that marriage would not be as easy as I thought.
Then they heard I was marrying a minister of the gospel [who travels often] and they said, “It’s  going to be very difficult.” Now, I am going to be a mother soon and they say, “life is going to change”.

Are they wrong? May be or may be not. In fact they may be right!

My first company was not easy. I had quite a hard time with my colleagues.
Marriage was not a cup of cake. I had to learn to sacrifice, to be selfless and to die to my flesh.
Ministry was not heaven’s door either. Dealing with people was a challenging area I had to face being an extreme introvert.
So will being a mother be an easy task for me? I do not know (yet).

But this one thing I know, and I am sure, that He who began a good work in me will bring it to completion. (Philippians 1:6.)

The fact is that we will face challenges in our lives very often and probably every single day.

The actual perspective:
Do not be consumed by the cares of this world. When we are not full of God, there is an emptiness we will experience that causes great void in our hearts.

Then we begin to subconsciously compare our lives, question God’s grace and be ungrateful to God’s blessings.

If we do not choose to see these challenges through His eyes, we will then be responding to life’s challenges negatively.

When Paul faced challenges in his life, the Holy Spirit reminded him, “But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9

Lean on the shoulder of Jesus every single day, hour and minute of your life. Then no matter how hard life is, He will give you the grace to come out victoriously.
