as i was skimming blogs this morning i ran across this qoute. it struck me. that human side of me that continually wants life to just be. no hardships, no struggles. just life and happiness. i am human. i want to have an amazing life, spend time with my family building amazing memories and not worry about some of the bigger picture things. i would much rather take my kids to teh beach, than pay off that Old Navy bill. (trust me i have done that before),but that is not real life. struggles make us grow. hardships draw us closer to God. I still like the qoute that tells us to treasure every moment, because that is true.
then i logged onto facebook and saw this scripture! wow. it was a confirmation in my mind that we must always delight in the Lord, above all others. He is the reason we are here, to worship and delight in Him. Not things of the world. Life is never going to be easy, but with God on your side nothing is impossible. He will not give me more than I can handle. and as i struggle to be more like Him, hardships make that possible.
