Ups And Downs

^Photo above done my my Mom. The title is "Hold Onto The Light".

Everyone's life has ups and downs, good and bad, great stages and break down stages. And when it's hard, it's hard...but, giving thanks and praising God helps. I know from experience.
Let me tell you something else I know from experience; He is going to be there in both the bad times and in the good times. I think it's great to know that He's there in the bad times, but even better to remember that He's there in the good times. Because sometimes when life is going so well, and you are enjoying every minute, you feel like you are fine without Him. You drift slowly away from Him. I sometimes am like that.
What we should do is pray that our relationship with Him gets stronger every single day. And we should pray ALL the time. Also, read the bible everyday.
Think about it- when things go pear-shaped, we run to Jesus for help, we are desperate, always looking for answers and someone to comfort us. So we spend more time with Him. Then when life's roads start to smooth out and not be so bumpy, we relax a bit. We stop clinging to Him so tightly...
I must cling to Him always, ask Him what to do next and want Him desperately, through all ups and downs. Let's put Him first where ever we go, whatever stage we are at.

"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."" - Hebrews 13:05
