Life has no Easy Button

I read a question someone posed this week and it made me think and pray.  It was “Why can’t everthing just be easy?” I know life is rough. School, relationships, home, bills, church, groups, siblings, parents and just searching for God’s provision.

It’s at this moment that you realize, life has no easy button. And to me, that’s okay. It’s okay as long as you are growing in the direction God wants you to grow. Grow in Him, not without Him. Listen to what He’s saying and don’t worry about what others think or say. Get rid of any influence that his holding you back.

This is something I’ve had to deal with recently and ya, I wish there was an easy button at times. Because then there would be no pain, no hurts, but there would also be no growth. So I can deal with the pain and hurt. It’s in the pain and hurt that we grow the most. Just remember that.

God loves you and wants you to grow in Him. So take the hard times happily. Learn from them and move where God wants you to go.

Love you all!

    I guess I’m the lucky one. I have an easy button, It’s called Jesus and every time I hit it He shows up with the answers I need. Only if I decide to do it on my own and not hit the button will life get really rough. In fact, life is only as rough as WE make it.

    I like this blog. I agree with what you said…and I know I’ve asked you that question before. I have God and yes, He’s the one that never fails me and always loves me…through the good times and bad. God never promised that life would be easy, thus there is no easy button! But He did promise to always be there to get us through the rough times. So I agree with your blog. Things are rough, there’s no easy button…but as you said, we need to do what God calls us to do…even if we will have to suffer a little for or because of it.
