Life is indeed, what you make it.
I have had many ups and downs yet with every hurtful incident I can honestly say that I have NEVER wavered in my faith OR questioned God WHY?
I add the last bit, the WHY because I hear so many people ask, Why did God let this happen?
God is not always to blame. Satan causes trouble. We ourselves, by the lives we live and the foods we eat, bring much on ourselves. Even on our unborn fetus, and birthed children.
His word says :
So rejoice about everything that happens to you. You are being moulded into a vessel for good use.
Physical life is a fleeting moment in time, a vapour soon blown away.
Eternal life however, never ends. It is a rainbow of happiness when we abide in the Father through Jesus Christ the son.
