I don’t know who you are. Or when you are reading this.
But here you are, so here it goes:
If things are going well for you right now, breathe deeply and savor the good. The bad is coming. It always does this side of eternity, and it will again. That’s the ebb and flow of the mortal coil—good and bad, in fits and starts, in either direction and back again. And that’s okay. Just because the reprieve is not “happily ever after” does not mean the hard times will break you. On the contrary, if you have your head and soul focused on whom they should be, you’ll come through the storm a little stronger. You may savor the next period of good a little more deeply as a result. If it’s good right now, embrace it. Cherish it–but not too tightly–seasons change.
But my guess is that you are more likely struggling, hurting, or wrestling. I feel that most persons with whom I speak these days are. It’s a rough time for a great many of us, individually and collectively. If things are not going so well, breathe deeply and savor the good, but engage the hurt, the pain, and the heartache. Don’t bury it; it’ll fester. It’ll kill you on the deep, and that infection will make its way to the surface. Trust me. I know. I’m proof.Learn More
