Happy, Despite the Situation

     I thought this was a great quote to share. I think it's a good one to remember and live out. The sermon at my church last night was on 'your breaking point.'  In Joshua 7;6-9,  Joshua asks God why He didn't just leave well enough alone.  We often do that.  We say if I hadn't of done what I thought You wanted then this wouldn't of happened. For example, saying if I had not have tried to go to church then I wouldn't of had that wreck.  Our breaking points can be big or small.  We must trust in God's grace and mercy to see us thru it.
     We visited a friend today who has just went on hospice care due to cancer.  What a good attitude she had today that was probably displayed as much for our sake as her own.  I'm sure she is trying to enjoy this time as much as possible but is also comforted and happy to know she's headed to the Promised Land soon. 
     To see past our troubled situations and be joyful thru it, we must hand it all over to Him.  Psalm 68:19 'Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.'
