Sometimes life happens and sometimes life happens a lot. The road of this earthly life often beautiful, yet its ditches littered with difficulties, pain, and disaster. Beautiful at a glance while muddy and treacherous when one takes a step or two off the paved road.
Stay on the path you might say. Great advice, but not always the way of my life. I stumble and the next thing I know I land in one of those holes carefully hidden amongst the beauty. I find myself face up toward the heavens after rolling through the muck and looking toward the light. You see I don't always instinctively look straight toward my Heavenly Father. It takes a little rolling around in the muck before I realize I'm not making any progress. It's then I find myself focusing on the only hope, my Heavenly Father!
If your life is like mine and it's been a little difficult or a lot difficult lately, let's re-focus on our Heavenly Father and get out of the muck one step at a time.
By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,
Andrea Bowling Perdue
