God's Word for Today: Working on the road, I have been very fortunate to meet many people from all walks of life. Each person I have met has a story to tell. Some are wonderful stories. Some are quite tragic. Similar to the stories we have been hearing every night during the 2016 Olympics.
I have noticed the people with the tragic stories have gone one of two ways. One direction is, "There is no way I can ever be happy with life again". The other direction is, "I'm going to keep on keeping on, and make the most of my life".
The amazing part is, the other people, opposite the tragic story ones, who have wonderful stories to share, also have one of the two outlooks. They either know where their blessings have come from, or they don't acknowledge them at all because they are lost.
What truly separates these people either tragic or wonderful story types, is their Faith. Either they have a strong belief in God and Trust in Him or, they have a complete lack of Faith. You can easily discern which person is which.
Today, pray for those who have a burden so heavy they can no longer truly enjoy their walk on this earth. Pray for those who have a wonderful story, but no Faith. And, pray for yourself. Thank God for His Blessings, and Ask Him to share this day with you. Now, take your story whether wonderful or tragic, make it God’s and your story and share…………………..
