Bad Times 2

Life is fill with misery when things around you just happen not to the way you have plan. Even though sometimes you got stress and feeling so down because you cannot find a way to solve the problems that hugging your life. What will you do?

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.

James 1:2-4
When all kinds of trials and temptations crowd into your lives, don't resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends! Realize that they come to test your faith and to produce in you the quality of endurance.

2 Corinthians 1:3-10 - Paul suffered beyond power such that he despaired of life. Someone may ask, "Doesn't that prove there are temptations which are beyond our power?" Yes, perhaps we may face temptations beyond our power, but not beyond God's power. Paul here says we should learn to trust in God.

Romans 8:31-39 - No suffering or hardship of any kind is able to separate us from God's love. Rather, we are more than conquerors! We can defeat them all if we are on God's side.

Nowhere does God say He will remove all our problems. Rather He promises we can endure, remain faithful, and receive eternal life despite our problems.

[Phil. 4:11-13; Heb. 11:34]

During Bad Times (1)

Everyday when we are facing the life with the same routine that fill with not much of contentment but only hardships, we will start thinking what do to next. But still when decisions make to upgrade our self don't seem to work at all. Does this mean that's the end of everything in our life?

Maybe we tried hard to ask friends and close family members to help out a little bit, but have you ever come across those people around you, also don't seem to bother or care much? But we don't take it hard on our self as we know during this time, the world is also facing a tremendous changing in life styles and financial woes. We know very well the situations won't get better yet for this time.
But we never give up. Why?

We come into a situation where being jobless for almost three years plus, we have children and family to be take care, but still to our disappointment the job we are looking for don't give us any more chances to expose our self. Either the pay was too low or the time consuming was too high, and another thing was they owner will tell you ," I think this job are not suitable for you, as we requiring younger people, we are sorry". We got so devastated and depressed. But what can we do, without any savings and loan catching up?
We end up selling our family car just to keep surviving. But what can we do after the saving from the car we sold already used up?

Doing small business was another hiccup too, we need to have a transport to travel around, how can we manage? We try all those Tom and Dick things just to keep on surviving. Odd jobs, selling cakes, cookies, babysitting, housekeeping and many more.

Life in your point of view

If life was filled with many difficulty would you not live on just because you could not take the hardship in life?
Life is how you see it in individual point of views. But if you should be fair person you will always need to weigh everything in all views rather than making up decisions, problems or trouble for other to solve it for you. This is everyone's responsibility to take care each situation in life.
Everyone's life is different and there no one with the same story.
