Faith Walk: Inevitable Life Pain

Author: Dr. George Flattery

Life is hard. Grief, loss and pain are inevitable parts of life.

We cannot control the adversities that come our way, but we can control our response, whether it is going to make us bitter or better. Pain is inevitable, but misery is optional. We cannot avoid pain – but we can avoid joy. God has given us such immense freedom that he allows us to be as miserable as we want to be. Life does not have to be perfect to live with joy. Joy is the deep settled confidence that God is in control of every aspect of our lives. We can choose joy today. Nehemiah 8:10, “the joy of the Lord is our strength.”

Daily encouragements reminding us how to continually walk in faith. Taken from Dr. George Flattery's Facebook devotional series.
