An Easy Life? (Hold On)

Have you ever looked at somebody's life and thought about how easy it must be to be who they are? I have. Without even knowing what the person had to go through to get there. Wherever "there" is, or what it takes for them to maintain. The reality is, nobody's life is easy. No matter how it may seem from the outside looking in. Each and every one of us has our own unique set of stresses and struggles, and not one of us is immune to life. If you think you are, then you need to check your pulse. I cannot emphasize this enough. Life isn't easy. It never has been easy and it never will be easy. The only way that it gets easier is if you hold on. Our experiences make us stronger, and strength allows us to endure if we choose to run this race. If you don't choose to hold on and run this race everything that you just read is academic, inconsequential, and not applicable because you will forever remain a spectator sitting outside of your own life watching it pass by. 
Do all that you can to make your life want you want it to be, STAND on the promises of God, and hold on.


"Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men/women. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work will be no miracle. You will be the miracle."

Phillips Brooks
