Life at times is a series of ups and downs; lately, it's been more downs than ups. I'm tempted to look at the negative aspects of my life instead of the positives. Without going into details, let me just say the future looks bleak and lonely for me. I can't see how things will ever change. Of course, I know I have to walk by faith and not by what I see.
However down on myself I may get at times, though, I choose to believe what God SAYS over what I FEEL: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." (Phil. 1:6, NASB) He's not done with me!
So, there you have it: I'm under construction; I'm a work in progress. To quote Joyce Meyer: "I'm not where I want to be, but thank God I'm not where I used to be."
