Life is full of ups and downs. There are so many transitions that we go through. Some transitions are for the good and well some are not good at all. I’m realizing that no matter what we go through, how we handle them is key.
Attitude is critical and the company we keep is very important as well. I’m learning that focusing on the situation especially if it’s unpleasant doesn’t help anything. Focus on the future, as a matter of fact make plans for the future. Trouble don’t last always, even if it doesn’t feel like it will come to an end, it will.
Think about how great you will feel when it’s over. If you maintain a good attitude you will feel even better than if you complain and whine the entire time. Job suffered greatly and was actually discouraged by the friends and people he had around him. His true comfort was the faith he had in God. Job 2:9-10 KJV, Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. 10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
