In the Bitter Now and Now… ~ June 10

In the Bitter Now and Now…

Or the sweet by and by?

Not only this, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering works perseverance; Romans 5:3

Suffering, trials, and troubles are not fun, and rejoicing while experiencing them seems a bit of a stretch. When we struggle day after day, we grow weary of the battle and it can begin to overwhelm us. This is especially true if we become so consumed with the bad things in our life that we can no longer see the good things. When the bad stuff becomes our focus, we can become bitter, and when we do, we often look for someone, or something, to place the blame upon for our situation. Sometimes, we even choose to blame God.

I’ve been through bad times, and I’ve seen lots of good times. I write about both, because I think it’s good to share both so others can hopefully learn from my experiences. Mostly, I hope they will learn by my mistakes, and not make them themselves!

I am learning to roll with the punches, and sometimes it’s not easy to do. Life can be harsh, but even when it is, we can usually find something to be joyful about. And if worse comes to worse, we always have the sweet by and by. For, no matter what, we shall gather on that beautiful shore, and trials and troubles will be no more!
