I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running: goo.gl/WGTF7
We are very lucky in that we have life that God has given us. We can enjoy the many creations He has done, and get our nourishment from the food He provides in the fields.
Sometimes we aren’t so lucky. There are storms and trials that come our way. Just today, I learned that one of my good friends had a stroke. It was unexpected. I visited him at the hospital and he was upbeat, but bewildered by the chain of events. He wasn’t depressed, but it was one of those “why me” times.
Also today, my nephew had to go in for a fourth surgery on his neck, because staff infection attacked his neck after a routine neck surgery where he should have been back to work in a few days. He is a young man, and yet he is fighting for his life right now.
Think about these two situations. Can you see that we never know when the storms may hit? We may feel everything is wonderful and then the darkness comes.
Be prepared for the trials that throw us into the muck and mire. Always remember that God is always there for us. he will allow the storms, but He helps calm them.
Stand strong in the Lord, because with Him on our side who can be against us?
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
