Christmas is over. Holidays can either be great, or awful. I'm learning as I'm growing older and experiencing life; that the struggles of this earthly world are so small to the love shown to us by our Creator. How often do we complain about the petty things? Sometimes, we do have 'bigger' issues to deal with; but how much time do we spend complaining about all of our issues? I'll be the first to admit; sometimes it can be really hard to not complain. When an event cuts so deep into our character than it can be difficult to move on from it or not to think/talk about it.
I think that it can be so easy to fall into the trap of believing 'my life sucks' or 'I'm a victim'. Sometimes we don't always deal with our issues, but they are constantly clouding our life because it's hard as stubborn people to deal with emotional pain. It can also be very difficult for us to admit that we have something that we need to work on. When we continue to either not deal with or not move on from our earthly problems; our eyes can not be set on what God may be trying to show us.
It is important to remember that God is so much bigger. It is hard to see, because we can not understandor physically see His plan for us. God sacrificed His only son for us so that we may live. If our eyes are set on Him, then we won't miss the opportunities or desires that He will place in our hearts. Just remember when you are struggling with something, that God is in control. He knows what the big picture is and He loves you so much. He will never leave your side and He is helping you pick up your cross. Cherish the good days and move on from the bad ones.
