The Cards You Have Been Dealt In Life – Skit Guys Video
A look at life: The Good and the Bad
My pastor reminds us regularly that “Life is Life for Everyone!”
None of us want to deal with the difficult seasons in life, but that is a part of the package of life. And everyone who walks this earth is going to face them.
Consider Jesus, the son of God. Having already dealt with trials and temptations and then facing crucifixion He prayed, “Father, if you be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but yours, be done.”
Then immediately there appeared an angel to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony He prayed more earnestly. (Luke 22:42-44)
May we strive to always be more like Jesus and trust God. To pray that God’s will be done, regardless of the suffering we may have to go through.
“Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”
— 1 Thessalonians 5:18
We don’t have to give thanks FOR the difficult times, but we do have to continue to give thanks to God IN the midst of them.
God bless you,
Yes, Brian – thanks for your comment. I agree that in and through everything we must look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Hebrews 12:2
I like your card story, I believe we all have a many true life experiences we need to go through. And we will experience others stories and life experiences to strengthen our attitudes and spirits within us.I am convinced these things that happen to us are seen differently by God, He is looking at a bigger picture than us. We don’t know who He is trying to strengthen or change for the better. I think he has brought us here to bring out the best that is within us.– 1 Corinthians 4:2
“I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
“Like a hungry lion” Ps. 17:10–14. If David looked around, he saw enemies on every side. But
when David looked up, he saw God, who “by Your hand” could “save me from such men.”
It does make a vital difference whether you and I look around or look up. Looking around creates fear; looking up brings confidence.
