It isn't always easy to be happy.
We all have days when life gets really hard.
Troubles come. Sometimes to us,
and sometimes to those we love.
People I love are having hard times just now.
Sickness and sadness weighing down their hearts.
Today, my own feels weighed down with them.
Too many sorrows and too hard to bear.
My spirit is reminding me how very small I am
in the scheme of big things.
Not that I am unimportant
but that there is a larger picture...
a perspective that stretches far beyond my own
a Power that rules the universe for good
and that if I am small in comparison
maybe my problems are, too...
and the problems of those I love.
Because God is watching us.
With purpose. And symmetry.
And a plan we can trust.
He knows what we need most.
Even when we don't.
And that makes us happy.
And hopeful. And whole.
Trouble comes, and trouble goes.
The river flows, the river flows.
