Life can be overwhelming. Some people have ups and downs while others feel it is constant confusion. My life is often a hit or miss. Not because of anyone or anything other that myself. I am my own worst enemy in many ways. Oh how often I desire to move away or just disappear. Then I read the Bible and realize I am not alone. Jonah felt this, Job felt even worse. Life can be exhausting, yes. Life can be frustrating, yes. But it is how we perceive our lives that can make the difference. I too desire to live a righteous life, however I am often in my own way. May we all have peace and joy in this lifetime, may the hills and valleys not mock nor kill us, our joy, our faith, our obedience, and love for God, as well as one another.
