Today was “one of those days.” I have been having a moment for about 2 years now. Circumstances in my life are kind of ….well “off.” I don’t know how to quite describe it because I am not happy with the way things are, but I am kind of content and I have joy so…what’s the problem, right? Well as it says in 2 Corinthians 4:8-11:
“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that his life may also be revealed in our mortal body.”
Everything thing around us could be falling apart, but if we are keeping our eyes on the Lord and the true purpose of life to bring glory to His kingdom, then we are never defeated. Failures are only temporary setbacks unless we stay down. Right now, I am desperately trying to keep afloat. My desires and intellect are fighting hand to hand combat with my faith. I went to one of the blogs that I follow called This Day With God and there was a post about overcoming difficult circumstances. It linked to a wonderful video as well:
Pressed, shaken, stirred…never broken.
