00637 - Sometimes It’s Just Hard

Life can sometimes feel like a torrent that threatens to overwhelm us. During such seasons, when the climb seems steep and the burdens heavy, it’s the art of taking one day at a time that becomes our silent anthem. Psalm 29:11 (NCV) says, “..the Lord blesses his people with peace.”.

The recognition that life is sometimes hard is not a defeatist attitude; it’s a testament to human resilience, a reminder that endurance is often born in the crucible of persistent struggle.

This approach reminds us of Matthew 6:34  (NCV), which says,"So don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have its own worries. Each day has enough trouble of its own”. Taking life one day at a time is a grace we extend to ourselves, acknowledging that while we may not conquer all our challenges, yet, we progress, step by step, until the season changes and things improve.


The hardships of today will change within days when we give them to God.


Take my hardship, Lord, and turn it into sunshine, I pray. Amen.

Action Point
