Tackling Adversity

In our lives we all experience adversity and tough times along the way. None of us have a perfect life where nothing ever goes wrong. The world is an imperfect place and from time to time we all will face troubles. During these hard times we may be forced to rearrange our lives, our priorities, our plans, our goals and our dreams. But even when we are at the bottom of the well and can find no way of escape we must remember God’s love is always there.

How we deal with these times of woe and despair depends on our choice to either face them head on, or not. If we choose to tackle and deal with these times of adversity we usually will find we can keep them from growing into a major catastrophe. Choosing to ignore them only delays the inevitable. We must try to keep a positive attitude and let God’s grace and peace into our lives.

We know that God loves us and he wants the best for us as any father would for his child. He will protect us. He will comfort us in our despair. In our grief, He stands closely by and dries our tears. In times of hardship, He carries us through. We must put our trust in Him and continue to strive to work hard tackling and facing our problems. We must hold fast to our faith. He is always with us.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned,
Nor shall the flame scorch you.
For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior
Isaiah 43:2-3
