Life naturally (and normally) brings with it ups and downs. Sometimes more downs than ups; but overall about the same.
Sometimes it feels as if there are more “downs” than ups. But the truth is that they are about equal. In fact, when I look back on my life, I realize that what my small human mind conceived to be “down” was actually an “up” when all was said and done!
It says in Scripture that PAPA works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His ways. What I’ve learned is that even when what I pursued may not have been “according to His ways”, He had a marvelous way of working it out to my good. The process may have been painful; but the outcome was delightfully delicious.
Much like giving birth! The process of childbirth can be excruciatingly uncomfortable; but once our child arrives – all thought of pain vanishes!
So when the process of your life feels like the pangs of labor; try to rejoice.
For once birth occurs we discover that all thought of anything other than “Up” has vanished.
A very blessed Tuesday to you all!
