A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. Proverbs 17:22Sickness, terminal illnesses, bad news, tragedy, and many other things can legitimately be reasons to be down in the dumps. God designed us with emotions but He did not design us to blame Him for bad stuff or be mad when someone else seems to never have problems.Right now I know of several friends and family suffering through things be it illnesses, financial trouble, lawsuits, job loss, prodigal children, family fights, or the loss of loved ones. Stuff happens in life. We are not in a perfect Utopia but struggles are part of life and believe it or not help shape and develop character. But why? Why me? Why now?You may never understand on this side of Heaven all the whys. The main thing is to not abandon God. Atheists would like it if you would as they try to disprove God entirely. Hang on to your faith, your hope, and your prayer. God will see you through.PRAYER: My hope is built on you Lord. Each and every day is a reason to give you thanks. In Jesus' name. Amen.
