This Thing called Life...

Some days are good days. The kind of day when we just enjoy our lives, jobs, families. Some days are bad days. Days when things just don't seem to go right.

Some days are filled with inexpressible joy. These are the days when we fully realize the true gift of life.

Some days are tough to be alive. They are full of pain that we are not sure we can make it though. These are the days when you don't understand how we can make it to tomorrow.

In all of those days both good and bad God is there. He loves us beyond anything we can possible hope to dream up in our minds. Yet I know that some people will read these words with great bitterness. They say if God loves me so much then why did X happen? Or why did this person do these things? Or insert your question here. My response is a simple one and yet I really believe it. God reaches out to all people everyday. Some have more difficult lives then others but all people everyone have the choice to seek after God or to run away from Him. Let us chase after the Lord. Sometimes we will do so full of Joy and peace. Sometimes we will do so filled with anger and doubt. In both times God is faithful. In both times God reaches his hand out to us and ask us to trust. I think God for this life, both the good and the bad, yet I know that if I will seek after the Lord then I will understand the true gift that life is for all of us.
