Our individual paths through this life always vary. There are years of happiness and years of suffering, years of plenty and years of poverty. There are also years of hope and years of disappointment, of building up and breaking down.
There are years of strength and years of weakness, years of great certainty and even years of serious doubt.
Such are the threads that weave together to form the fabric of the canvas of our lives. And through all our years and our experiences, it is comforting to know our God is there with us and is present in all our activities.
Sometimes, when the going gets rough, the effort of survival can often seem impossible. However, it is important we keep on striving in everything we do. If we never lose hope, then a new future is always possible.
Even on the other side of death a different existence awaits us. Hopefully then, we will at last find the rest we sought in this life, in the arms of a God who has loved us through all of our surviving years.
I’m Peter Mack and that’s faith.
