Life may seem overwhelming but is not if we but put our trust in the Lord. This is life! It would be dull indeed without events, if each day were the same without surprise, without shadow and sunlight, breeze and stillness, storms and calm, laughter and tears, failure and triumph, glorious is life.
Be thankful for all of it and for the growth you acquire through experience. The path can be rocky indeed, and the climb steep, but the view is extraordinarily breathtaking. Sing and shout and dance and be glad for your life.
