Whatever You Are Going Through

I was watching something on TV and one of the women featured was at the Boston Marathon when a bomb went off just a few metres from where she and her fiance were standing.  Both of them were very badly injured. One of her legs was severely damaged and after multiple surgeries it appears she will have to have the leg amputated, but first she wants to walk down the aisle to get married.  When asked about how life is for her, she said, ‘everyone goes through trials and this is ours.’

How we cope with the difficulties in our lives very largely depends on our attitude. I think it was Nic Vujicic, the amazing man born with no limbs, who said something like, ‘If I have to live with no arms and no legs, I am going to be the very best person with on arms and no legs that I can be!”

Nic is the most amazing guy. Born with no arms and no legs, he went through a serious period of depression, where, at a young age, he tried drowning himself in the bath. What a tragedy it would have been if he had succeeded. His life has gone on to inspire and encourage millions of people across the world. 4 minutes in his company will bring tears to your eyes and make you appreciate what you do have…

Married with a son and his wife pregnant with their second child, life has turned out far differently than Nick could ever have imagined….Photo from Facebook. Big brother in waiting!Photo from Facebook. Big brother in waiting!

 If his life had ended prematurely, he would have missed out on so much.

Sometimes our circumstances can push us down and we lose sight of the fact that God has a plan for our life. He wants us to be happy and fulfilled. As Nick couldn’t see what his future held, neither can we. Just keep going.

Whatever happens to you, be the best you can be in your circumstances.

Our life on earth is the dress rehearsal for our life in heaven. We are backstage. The real deal is still to come. Don’t ever fall away from following Jesus. Even on your deathbed, the best is yet to come.

Psalm 68 vs 19
” Praise be to the Lord, to God our Saviour who daily bears our burdens”

Whatever you are going through, God has a plan and it is for good.

Keep the smile going.
