My new friend, Ebony (Hi, E!) recently wrote about how you never know who is watching you. Just days later someone sent me this message, "I follow you on Facebook and I read your daily blog posts. You seem genuinely happy and your life seems so perfect. How do you do it? Are you just naturally positive or are you (I don't mean to offend you I just really am looking for some answers) on some sort of medication? Please tell me the secret to a happy life."
I'm excited to answer this one. Here goes.
1. Nope, no dope.
2. I'm sure I've out-meaned Satan himself on occasion, so don't go canonizing me just yet:)
3. Storms of life do come my way because tragedy and pain are an inescapable (not the way God wanted it - Read more in Genesis.) part of human life. But here's the difference you recognized in my life:
I have a solid faith in a living Savior who guides me daily and never leaves me. He gives me grace to withstand the hardships. And when the big bad wolf of life wants to blow me down and consume me, he might as well just save his breath, because my Shelter, (Jesus Christ) is unshakable. Christ shows me daily His love for me. Even in the midst of losing a child, I had strength. There were (and sometimes still are) tears. There were (are) questions. But His grace was (is) sufficient to get me (and you, too!) through the storms. Jesus himself says it better than I could. He explains it here in Matthew 7: 24-27
