Life Shouldn't Be This Hard by Debbie Lacy

Updated on November 20, 2011

Simplify your life and give your worries to God.

We all know that life can be difficult at times especially with today's struggles. I often find myself saying, "Life Shouldn't be this hard!" Until recently one day I slowed down to ponder why myself and everyone else is becoming so stresed.

Sure it's not easy living in today's economy, as most of us are really feeling the pinch. It seems everything is rising except our salaries. "Hello!"

So why worry when we can take some positive measures and start simplifing our lives by letting go of some those heavy burdens that cause stress in our lives. Just ask yourself, you know what some of those things are!

Life is hard enough just getting through the day! We find ourselves stressing trying to juggle the budget because we can't pay "Peter for paying Paul" sorta speak. It's enough to drive you crazy causing strokes, heart attacks and high blood pressure because of stress and nowadays the money we make really doesn't go very far.

Ever noticed how people no longer talk about the weather but the high cost of gas and food prices are widely discussed in conversations these days.

I've come to the conclusion that there is absolutely no point in being miserable as we go about our everyday lives. There is nothing that can happen that we can't overcome nor is there any problem that we can't work out when we turn to God for the solution. It's as simple as that! God sees all and knows all because he created Heaven and Earth. It's His world and all things are possible with Him when you ask in faith.

As we live today, let's count our blessings and in doing so we will learn that life is exactly what we make it! Just trust God and He will get you through.

So you see, life really shouldn't be this hard!

      I agree, life is tough enough as it is but God can always bring you out of tough situations in whatever we're going through. We all need to practice putting God first in our lives! Great write here!

      Oh yes Dream On the world is in such a turmoil and it seems things aren't getting any better! There are many things to fix but instead we're placing our concerns on the issues of other countries. If they just pay attention and take a good look around this country there are people starving because they have no jobs to buy food or provide shelter right under our noises and the list goes on and on. They just don't get it! Hello lights! But know that God is able to fix things when we pray and ask Him believing thru faith that HE will deliver! So let's stay prayerful my friend! Thanks for your comment lady and be blessed. :)

      Thank you C-Bless, I'm so glad you agree! Like I always say, we are too blessed to be stressed. It just doesn't make sense to let this rising economy kill us and sense our salaries aren't rising, we need to start simplifing our lives by cutting back to keep more money in our pockets. Thanks for your support! :)
