Are Your Circumstances Overwhelming You?

An interesting thing happened when I went for my first chemotherapy treatment. I was filled with “fear and trembling.” A lovely woman was escorting me to show the way and she asked how many chemo treatments I had been through. I explained it was my first session. She said she had been through chemo and that life goes on.

I said, “You mean there is life after chemo?”

She said, “My dear there is life during chemo too.”

That is a lesson for us all. There is life after the challenging circumstances we must endure. And there is also life during those circumstances.

There is life after illness. There is also life during illness.
There is life after recovery. There is also life during recovery.
There is life after loss. There is also life during loss.
There is life after divorce. There is also life during divorce.

We must not forget to live, love and laugh each day. Stop and smell the flowers. We must not forget to thank God for the gift of each day and the lessons He will be teaching us that day.

 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage. Do not be afraid, neither be dismayed. For Jehovah your God is with you in all places where you go.  Joshuah 1:9 MKJV
