I look at a lot of my friends and I’m jealous. They seem to be living an obstacle and problem free life, but then again they may look at me and think the same thing.
Truth is that none of us live a life without obstacles and problems, and whenever we get to that point of catching our breath a new obstacle pops up.
It might be unique to southerners, but it seems when you ask someone how they are doing, we expect to hear, “I’m doing fine.” Our problems are ours to overcome, and are not for public consumption.
God does not remove obstacles or offer a problem free life, either. But he does promise us the strength to handle them. Remember, “The Good Lord doesn’t give you a load you can’t tote.”
At times we may not feel capable of dealing with our problems, but God’s gift to you is he gives you just the right amount of fortitude to deal with your current troubles.
With God’s help and the support of your neighbors life will not be problem free, but it is will be a life full of unimagined and unasked possibilities.
