Enjoying Everyday life

I believe that God wants all of us to enjoy life and experiences his blessings but why do God allow imperfections, weakness, failures, problems, difficulties, tragedies and struggles that make life hard and miserable? three possible reasons: 1. God wants to test our attitude and faith in him. 2. God wants to test our resilience. 3. The devil simply wants to steal, kill and destroy. He simply wants to destroy our faith and our good life. So what should we do? 1. Impress God. Keep your faith and have a good positive attitude 2. Be resilient. Be able to recover fast and move on 3. If this is work of the enemy then have a spiritual warfare. Continuously fight the devil and never let him win the battle. 4. Always remember with God there is always happy ending. Always remember God wants us to enjoy every day life and experience being blessed in this life in hundreds of different ways. This is my reflection and what I need to tell to myself.

The Garden of Eden was perfect - until Eve ate the apple.

That's true but there's always happy ending when we believe in God's power

Very interesting topic! Very good way of looking at the situation and dealing with it. As you say, if we stick with God, one day things will all be straightened out and then we will enjoy eternity. The Bible helps us to understand the why and how to deal with the present situation. Many have found that meditating on Proverbs chapter three has been very reassuring and refreshing.

I will try to meditate on that part of the Bible. It's really a good way of looking to situation. One day God will fix all our problems and give us always a happy life

@averygirl72 Yes, when God's kingdom comes, all problems will be solved and only joys lie ahead. Psalm 37:11King James Version (KJV) 11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace....29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

That's cool one thing you forgot. Sometimes he uses imperfection to show his power through us... He use us as instruments for those who are becoming weak in the faith... And for those who think they will not be worthy enough when in fact we are all not worthy enough but still Christ live us that much. God bless. I keep all this in mind whenever I am down... I'll remember this post of your.
