Life Is Like That
You may be groaning right now from
the heavy burden that is on your shoulder,
but take heed, the Lord is just strengthening
those shoulders for you to be able to bear
the burdens of others.
You may be in a very dark tunnel right now
unable to see anything at all,
but take heed, there is always light
at the end of the tunnel.
You may be complaining right now about
how hard it is to climb your mountain,
but take heed, after your arduous climb
you will see the most spectacular scene
at the top of the mountain.
Life is like that my child.
The Lord seems too harsh on us at times,
but please remember that He will never
give us any trial wherein He will also give
us sufficient grace to overcome them.
The eagles cannot fly to the very heights
of the sky if they were not pushed out
of their comfort zones by their mothers
who wanted them to fly on their own.
The process may be painful and scary
as the young eagles plummet to the ground
but with tremendous pain and efforts
of flapping their young wings,
they eventually learn how to fly and
soar ecstatically among the clouds.
Pearls are made when an intruder
invades the oyster who secretes
that powerful enzyme that kills
the intruder and turn it into an
The salmons swim upstream
half way around the world to
return to their spawning grounds
where they eventually die after
laying their eggs.
Life is ebb and flow, strike or miss.
Nobody has a monopoly of the very
best and the worst of life.
Each person has his own cross to carry
and the burdens to bear,
but after the hard lessons in life
are learned, the Lord will give us
the crowning glory of success.
Hold on, push through, climb higher still.
For every tear that you shed
a crowning joy is waiting for you.
You were fearfully and wonderfully
made by the Lord and He will not stop
pushing you to your limits until that
masterpiece which is you has been
fully developed for the whole world
to marvel and admire.
God loves you more than you will
Did He not die on the cross for you?
So when you are burdened by the
heavy load you are carrying,
remember that the Lord is at your side
crying and sighing with you.
Smile child. It is a beautiful life.
It is a wonderful world.
