This God—His way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true;
He is a shield for all those who take refuge in Him.
Life is a roller-coaster. It has its ups and it has its down. It has moments of joy and moments of restless anticipation. And all through this one journey, you will be able to experience a plethora of emotions (some of which you didn’t know you could feel), learn and toughen up for a more challenging ride. Some stop this ride halfway, some tough it up and look it straight in the eye with a brave face. Each of us has our own way of looking at situations and reacting to it. Nobody comes with a manual.
Replacing things is easy. Avoiding certain experiences is simple. Recently, someone asked me if there is anything in my life that I would like to replace. I thought about it for some time and responded, “No”. Honestly, I would pick that response over and over and over again. Why? If through all the joys and sorrows, all the victories and failures, all the loved and the lost we can see perfection in our lives, how much more perfectly will God’s plan for us be. He’s the maker after all. So when things seldom make sense to you, lean back and relax. Let the Maker take charge. He knows perfection.
Lord, teach me your way and give me the grace to follow. When life gets hard, help me to fall back on you and acknowledge your strength as my own. Be my strength O Lord; be my shield. Help me live life through your perfection and live in the light of Your truth. Amen.
