It Never Gets Easy…Just Learn to Cope

Life never gets easy. There are things that we go through that makes life hard. Look at what we are still facing in America and all around the world. Sickness is still happening, death is still happening, and nothing is getting any better than it was in the beginning.

War is going on, but when will it come to an end? Through it all, we just learn to cope with what is happening around us. We see it, but we don’t know what to do to make things better. We live in this world where we only think about ourselves and not about what’s really important; not to say that we are not important, but I am talking about the issues that we face everyday.

Problems come, but do we have all of the resources to solve them? Do we know where to turn for answers? We have the right to write our congressman, or congresswoman, or whomever is in charge, but the question is this, WILL THEY ANSWER! Will they take the time to respond to the inquiries that’s been set before them?

Normally, I would not even write like this, but a lot has been on my mind lately about the things that is happening everywhere in the world. Everyone in high authority know what needs to be done as far as homelessness. There need to be facilities for them to live in so they can get back up on their feet. Homelessness has always been, and I suspect it will still be until someone somewhere actually does something about it, and not just talk about it.

Winter is on the way and so are all of the things that comes along with it. Whenever I think about Winter, I think about those who are homeless. It makes me sad that they have to struggle going through something like this. I think about the children, the elderly, and all of those who don’t have a warm place to sleep.

This time of the year pulls at your heartstrings. It makes you think about all of the things you’ve come through, and all of your blessings. It makes you feel grateful for everyday given. What about those who are less fortunate? Well, I can truly say that I didn’t always have what I have now. I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth, or have anything handed to me on a silver platter, but I was thankful for what I had. Thinking back to those times, I kind of was the less fortunate. I know what it is like to want something and never get it. I know what it is like to struggle from day to day barely making it from one month to the next. So, yes, I know what it’s like to be less fortunate.

We cope with things by praying. We pour out our heart to the LORD! We tell Him what we are feeling about the things we don’t like, or understand, and we tell Him about what we do like, and what we do understand. He gives us wisdom to see things in new ways, and how to understand what’s going on around us. He gives us strength for each new day to cope with life and all of its ups and downs.

We take one day at a time because that’s all we are given. We hope that better days will come, but to have better days, we have to look for the good things even in the bad times when things are dark. Life happens and life ends eventually, but while we are here, let us all learn to cope in a good way so we can live full happy lives. With that being said, Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!
