“Keep your head up. God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers.”
This is one that I constantly reminded myself of when I was helping care for my parents. Both of which were fighting one heck of a battle against cancer. Unfortunately, our family lost them with in five short months of one another…some would say cancer was the victor here…but I believe the true victors are them, my parents. They are no longer suffering the pains and ailments that went along with that nasty C word; and they brought so much awareness of unconditional love, importance of health and God into many of our lives.
We are all faced with trials and tribulations, no one is immuned. It may not be apparent at that very moment as to why; but there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. It is ultimately what we do and how we react to these trials that truly matter. By encountering a tribulation you can help someone else because you have been in that situation…you can comfort them because you have been through the same thing and through the pain you trusted in God.
Think of trials as training. God has to train his troops; to prepare his children for the future. For remember, God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers!!!
