'Life is Like ... '
"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get." (Forrest Gump).
When you consider a box of Chocolates we see a full array of delicious treats. You know there is one flavour you love but from the outside and without touching, you can not tell which one is 'the one'. How do we find the 'one'? We read the instructions inside the box, it describes the flavour, the print marking on the chocolate and the colour of the wrapper.
Worrying will not help us to decide or find 'the one' any quicker. Worrying will not give us the answer, nor the one to choose.
Paul is explaining 'read the instructions', find our answers and taste the joy of Christ for ourselves, grow deeper through His grace.
Keep on keeping on! It's a saying that you often hear nowadays, 'Keep on Keeping on' because ... I think the answer should be ... because God loves You!
Do not stop because you're tired, keep going because you're nearly there!
Keep the Faith, hod on, things will get better!
Do not dwell on those who let you down but on those who lifted you up!
The secret is - keep going!
Keep moving forward and only look back to see how far you have come!
God's heart is that we would recognize ourselves as His children. He loves us! He wants us to have peace of mind, but it can only occur by having the mind of Christ.
Look for your instructions (the Bible), deal with your issues, do not worry, search out God's perfect path and feel the inner God of Peace with you!
