Lord, I thank you for trials and tribulations because they make me strong. I thank you for sickness because it makes me appreciate the well days. I thank you for when I’m down because it makes me appreciate being up. Lord, I’m thankful for the storms because it makes me appreciate the sun. Yes, Lord I’m thankful Lord!
For times when it seems like there is more trouble than I can handle I’m yet thankful. For times when there are more tears than smiles I’m still thankful! Because I know that not all days will be good but that I’ve been equipped with the right stuff to bear it.
When sleep won’t come, God gave me eyes to read his word with. When I’m pacing the floor at night he gave me a mouth to talk to him with. When my bills are due and checking account is already overdrawn he gave me knees to pray on and faith to know that all things will work out. When friends are gone and I feel alone, God is my comforter!
So if you’re facing a tough time right now, death has shown it’s face in your family, sickness has attacked your body or the enemy is trying to defeat you; hold on! Grab that line that has you attached to God and hold tight. If it seems like there’s a break, reach beyond it and if you can no longer hang on, fall! But fall with the faith that you’re landing safely in God’s arms. Because once you land, you’ll bounce right back up on your feet, ready to run on!
God has your back and he won’t let you suffer for long. But you will suffer! But suffering gives you the testimony of your victory once you’ve overcome. So be proud of the scars you’ve gotten, show them off! Let the world know that you are victorious!
