Life Is A Journey Waiting To Be Explored

Many times we go through life and think everything is awesome. You might have a great home, married, 3 kids, nice car, nice job, live in an area you have always dreamed of wanting to live, etc never expecting anything different and all of a sudden Bam ... something happens and that is when life really Challenges you and often this is when you find out what you are really made of. You then find out who your true friends are, what really makes you tick, and how strong you are in being able to do what it takes to get thru it continuing to keep strong, praying, trusting and Believing God and just know in time you will get thru this and be a better person because of it. You even on your worst days where you wonder if it is worth it get reminded somehow of how great God is aND no matter what happens from here on out, God is in control. With having the wound on my back due to having the surgery about a month ago, it would be so easy for me to give up. Even had those moments within the last 12 hours to where I wondered if it was really worth it all, and really why me again? Many here might remember I have issues with wanting to heal and prone to infections easily so when it seems like a Doctor, hospital, home health nurse,etc decides to not care about a wound like I think they should I want to physically almost want to ask them if I can trade them places. I would love to have been the person able to work til they are 65 or older and be self sufficient with no worries. But God did not allow this and has presented many challenges and as I learn to overcome them I learn a lot more about myself and life and hope you will allow me to continue to share so you can help walk some of my life's journey thru me.

It's true that with suffering we do become stronger, especially in faith to get through it all. I'm sorry for the health concerns you have. I hope you continue to have faith and keep growing.

Commenting on your last paragraph I do not believe that God causes our problems - but I do believe he is there to help us through them .

Maybe I worded it wrong, because God never causes our problems. We create them. With his help if we ask and believe he will help get us out of them and back to where we need to be.

Yes, he does not cause our problems... We are the one who creates them many times trying to do things our own way.

I had some troubles in my life but my biggest mistake is not going to church much. Probably I can make time to visit tomorrow

Life is full of challenges and how we deal with them says a lot about us as people. You are obviously a fighter, not a quitter.

I truly feel even with all I have been thru and what life continues to throw me from time to time, this is the Truth. I do consider myself a fighter, and feel life is truly worth fighting for.
