You can count on it. Whatever the circumstance, whatever the difficulty, He can and wants to, make something fantastic from it. A life of ease is hardly worth living though that’s too often what we seek. A life without challenge gets old fast. The key is embracing the struggle, challenging ourselves and looking for God in the middle of it all.

We’re celebrating the wedding of my wife’s brother this weekend and what a wonderful chance to get together with family that we haven’t seen in years and to welcome a whole new branch to our family tree. The ways God brings people together amaze me. “How did you meet?” Is always a story of God at work. What stories might we discover today?

God is at work all over the place and He wants nothing more than for us to join Him in it. He doesn’t have specific places or days set aside for what He’s doing. Let’s seek Him for who He would have us love on today no matter where we are or even how awkward it might be.

How can we have joy at all times, even when things aren’t going well for us? That’s where trust and faith come in. God is always at work in our lives and if we will cooperate with Him, seek Him in everything and listen for His direction we’ll be better able to approach even the most difficult circumstances with joy. If God’s love for us is perfect, and it is, then we can know that somewhere down the road we will be able to see redemption and even appreciate today’s difficulty.
