Life Is So Wonderful

Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.
Isaiah 25:1

The things that have been and shall be no more, The things that are, and that hereafter shall be, The things that might have been, and yet were not, The fading twilight of joys departed.

Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Life is so wonderful. But few of us realize it when we are young.

When our body starts breaking down, we feel so bad.

Trouble putting one foot before the other.

Then we realize; we are on way down the hill.

Once we were on top.

And didn't realize how good it was to be up there.

So you see.
Life is up hill, then down hill.

Finally, you hit bottom.

Simply let God be with us as we are going.

Always with us, even if we are falling off that hill.

Life without Him isn't worth much.

Through heartaches, God is there.

Through sickness, God is there.

When we feel life is over, God is there.

Thankfully, one of these days, if we follow him, we will be there with Him.

It makes sense to be grateful for every moment. The visible and invisible teach us even when we do not raise our awareness enough to realize it. Thank you for the beautiful image and reflections.

That was so beautiful and much needed. I have recently discovered your blog and believe it is going to be a real help to me spiritually. I was especially struck by this post because I deal with illness, and I found this so encouraging. Thank you so much for letting God use you to uplift others. Be blessed.

Another piece I like that your post brings to mind is William Wordsworths "Intimations of Immortality" ode - it has a line about "the faith that looks through death," which I like. Not around it, or avoiding it, or pretending it isn't there, but through it.

Wonderful post. God is with us all the time, we need to learn to turn to him not just in the bad times but in the good times too. We need to thank him for all he has given to us.

Love and Blessings,
