Family Matters 1-14-2020

It is a sure thing that there is not one individual or family who does not have some obstacles in their life. Even the apostle Paul wrote that he was “pressed on every side.” No one is immune to troubles. Our part is to handle those situations in the proper way. Our attitudes during hard-times has a lot to do with our outcome.

The truth is that obstacles reveal what we truly believe and who we really are. Trials, actually could provide us an opportunity for growth, if we have the right attitude. Thomas Carlisle said, “The block of granite which was an obstacle in the pathway of the weak, becomes a stepping stone in the pathway of the strong.”

Problems may temporarily detour you, but only you can allow them to make you stop. Make a determined decision that you are going to “keep on keeping on” until victory comes to you and your loved ones. Your struggle may be lasting longer than you would like, but it doesn’t have to be everlasting!
