Spring is finally on the way! After a brutal winter here in the states, we have many pot holes and bumpy roads all over our towns. So many so, that it’s hard to navigate around some of them. When we can’t drive around them we just drive through them and hang on.
Life is like that sometimes. There are things that happen along the way that we can’t get around and must go through. A few examples of these very bumpy life roads are growing old, diseases, the death of persons we love dearly, and even our very own death. At times like these, there’s no other way but through it so get through it is what we try to do.
What if there was a better way? What if the bumpy roads of life and the potholes/pits didn’t have to feel so bad? What if there was a way instead of just going through the bumpy roads of life to thrive despite them? I believe there is a way. In fact, we are told that a power greater than us will carry us through. In Phillipians 4.6-7 we hear, “Don’t worry about anything. Instead pray about EVERYTHING. Tell God what you need and thank him for all he’s done. Then you will experience God’s peace which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus”.
No matter what is happening in your life today, the giver of life is ready to lend a hand. Give Phillipians 4.6-7 a try and see how you will rise above the circumstances and amaze even yourself! He’s waiting patiently to help along life’s bumpy road!
