Hard Things

Hard things don’t need to make you a harder person.  Matthew 11:28-29 Jesus says “Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls”.  An eagle can fly higher than any bird of the air.  It loves to fly when there is wind because it can use the wind to fly even higher and faster.  The eagle doesn’t struggle against the wind, the eagle uses the wind for its good.  Sometimes we are burdened by a thing because we haven’t learned to use that thing for our good.  All the challenges that come our way are not necessarily meant to be challenges against us but for us – to help make us better.   If your work is difficult now, stay there and learn how to use the difficult part to work better; if your children are a challenge now, stay close to them and learn how to be a better parent, if your marriage is difficult right now – for all that is within you – stay committed and learn how to be the best spouse you can be.  If being a faithful believer is a challenge right now, stay with it – go to Jesus  – put His yoke on your neck- watch Him and see how He Works; see how He is a parent; see how He is a great spouse – even if His spouse. – you and me – are not our best – your circumstances want to teach you how to struggle and to become hard but Jesus wants you to let Him use your circumstances to teach you how to live right where you are, as the best that you can be, as soft as cotton but as sure as the purest gold.  Do this and you will find rest for your life.  Live a Delivered Life.  Love you
