I love this verse in Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament. It really says it all in a nutshell. Whether good or bad God has your back. Stuff is going to happen because sin is in our world. The world throws curve balls at us that we have to dodge occasionally and press on for the home runs ahead of us in this life God has blessed us with.You have probably heard that trials are a part of life and whether you like it or not they indeed strengthen and teach. If everything came easy there would not be challenges to help grow you. Imagine a child who stays in first grade forever because it is fun and easy. Certainly there is no disputing that but that child will be stuck in a rut never moving beyond and never growing.You may prefer the good times of life and rejoice and praise God when you have them but also realize sometimes things may be hard. Continue to rejoice and thank God for helping develop you into the person He wants you to be.PRAYER: I love you Lord. I know it is in hard times I learn things so for that I say thanks. In Jesus' name. Amen.
