2 Corinthians 1:5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.”

God’s way of rejuvenating your spirit is totally different compared to the way the world chills out. People of the world flush out huge money to go for a few days vacation in a resort nestled in the midst of a vast space of land with trees all around. Acres of land and sand create a sense of space and grant a kind of anonymity that can be very soothing. Swimming in the private courtyard, outside the room and then stretching languorously under the sun on the sand is certainly relaxing. Living in a world where your life is jam-packed with activities and agenda, such places are means to come in wrung-out and go chilled-out. However, the bliss and ecstasy of the trip is lost the moment you step into the frantic world only to look for the next vacation.

Most of the thrill is lost, the moment the bill comes to your hand. Now let me compare it with God’s ways of energizing you, which stirs you up and triggers you to jump up and face the world. Now this joy is not going to leave you so easily! You have the energy in the midst of problems, in the midst of disease, failure or loss. December 21, Wednesday (yesterday) I had to cook Christmas feast for the Abide School students, it was eerie time because we were running short of workers.  I was praying from early morning and felt drained out; however, God sent helpers and the  work was done.  Amen. The joy of the Lord becomes your strength! God in your life can offer you a whole load of joy than what these ‘beach resorts’ offer you, not to mention the hole that they make in your pocket. How can one be confined in a room and still be happy and be filled with peace? You may not have the swimming pool, luxurious rooms or the plush green gardens to take a stroll in the evening; yet you can sing in the dark. God Says” Hosea 6:6  For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.” Steadfast love!

Dear friend, we need some breaking before blessing, otherwise we would fail to appreciate or value the blessings. What comes easily is also forgotten easily!  ‘Hard times help us get more deeply rooted in God. They work humility in us and cause us to be thankful when the blessing comes.’-Joyce Meyer

The key is to remember that God is in control of all things and at all times! When you remember this and put your trust in God; you will know that there is a bigger picture, and you will be filled with hope and confidence
