Circumstances beyond Your Control
Being happy is easy when life is going well; but what
about when circumstances spin out of control and bad
things happen one right after another.
We all have times when we feel that we just can’t get
out from under the storm clouds. How do people stay
happy during the tough times?
It’s been said time and time again that when the going
gets tough the tough get going, but some people don’t
find that at all easy to do.
Positive attitudes can help, but knowing that there is
a higher power that controls the chess pieces of our
lives lets us know that this hard time is only a bump
in the road and will soon pass.
This deep acceptance of faith is called joy; and hard
times simply can’t compete with pure joy.
We may not understand why bad things happen to good
people, but we know that they do and always will. Bad
things happen to bad people too, just as good things
happen to good people.
It’s just the way it is. If we can simply understand
that we can’t know certain things on this side of
life, which will help us get through life here.
Try to look at everything as part of God’s plan and as
a positive experience; find joy in the simple
pleasures in life and don’t let the circumstances of
the day (or week) get you down!
