One of Those Days

Posted on: 7-15-112011

I received a phone call today from one of my friends that was having one of those days when nothing goes right. We’ve all had those kind of days! No matter what we do, everything seems to completely fall apart! The harder we try to make things better, the worse they become! It is very discouraging and it’s very difficult to maintain your Christlikeness. It can be easy to want to give up and throw in the towel. On days like these, it’s so hard to maintain a Christlike attitude! Our patience runs thin, our temper starts to flare, and our whole outlook can become dismal. However, Jesus had some encouraging words for us on days like these.

“I say this so that in Me you have peace and confidence; in the world you will have tribulations and trials and distress and frustration. But be of good cheer! For I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

Jesus already knows each and every struggle you will ever face! He knows the difficulties and the discouragement! He knows how hard it is for you to choose an attitude that reflects Him over an attitude that reflects your old self. But, He still tells you to hang on because He knows that victory has already been won in Him! No matter what your going through, hold onto Him with everything in you! He is the One who will never let you down!
