Everywhere we turn, we see challenges and misfortunes, trials and tragedies. We've all experienced these times in our lives. These are the times that drive us to our knees with the unbearable weight of the world. These are the times that drive us to our knees to seek guidance from our Loving Heavenly Father. But these trying times are what make us better.
We have to fall in order to stand taller. Have you ever thought of that? In order to stand, we have to have fallen. When we have been pushed to our knees by the burdens and cares of the world, it's our job to arise. We can do that! During these times of challenge and misery, trials and tragedies, we must stand.
But how? We look for the little things that make each day marvellous. We pray for strength to live in every moment with joy. We serve others without a thought about ourselves. All of these things help us stand. We recover and are capable of rising up. We can see the happiness and love, joy and peace that are ever-present in each one of our lives. These hard times are given to us to rise up and embrace the happiness that is in life. It may be hard to find, but it is there. Seek it out, and you will never be the same again.
