“We don’t need the road to be without trouble to remain unshakeable.”
How do we balance ‘hope’ for a good road ahead for you and your family but the wisdom of knowing that we will experience trouble and difficulties?
We know for sure –that there will be trouble in our little world and this big world.
Sometimes we bring trouble on ourselves through our own choices and other times trouble comes from others and external influences that are totally out of our control.
I am sharing this because I believe we can be prepared for rough times ahead without being completely thrown off-course.
We don’t need the road to be without trouble to remain unshakeable.
We don’t need everything to work out the way we want, to keep hopeful
We don’t need perfection to have an inner sense of peace.
Peace, hope and remaining unshakeable – in what is important – is not reliant on everything going right. Peace, hope and remaining unshakeable are internal, matters of the heart that come back to faith, the value of people, and the picture of our contribution to people and communities whilst we have breath on this planet.
We get disheartened when we think that troubles and difficult times should not come or will not come.
We get disappointed because our expectations were not accurate.
Expect some troubles, but have a higher expectation in these troubled times of hope and peace and remaining unshakeable in your heart of hearts.
