Life happens and it’s often painful, overwhelming and devastating. That’s when it can be tempting to just look out for yourself. Quite frankly, however, that never works. But there is something that does. Accept life on the terms it comes to you, and deal with it. Pray for strength, wisdom, courage and to be part of God’s solution. And join hands with others to deal with the reality you are facing. When you do, you will discover God’s gift of abundant life at the most unexpected times.
