Everyone has problems. I don’t think I’ve ever met another human being without a problem in his or her life. Problems and complications–heartaches, headaches–are a part of life and the sign of a strong person is someone who knows how to deal with his or her problems and advise others on theirs.
But that doesn’t mean you should have a heart of stone. We all need a little help sometimes, an hand to rely on, a shoulder to cry on. But at times, we all have this one time or another in our lives, when there’s no one we can turn to, there is always God’s words and teaching to provide strength and comfort – in the Bible. The Bible is the source of strength for a Christian. The Bible is always there when you need it, always giving the best advice.
Simply the Bible is inspirational. If you’re feeling a bit down and out looking for something to cheer you up, the Bible is a great source of inspiring. Doubtful? Why don’t you get your personal copy of the Bible and start reading the books of Proverbs, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Job, and the Song of Songs – also known as the Song of Solomon.
For example, the story of Job’s trials. In one stroke, Job’s health was compromised, his wealth was taken from him, and worst of all his children were killed. Job underwent great pain and sorrow. But what he didn’t realize at the time was that he was being setup to become the centerpiece of God’s greater plans; Job held on to God as he went through his suffering. If you continue reading Job’s story in the Bible, you’ll find out that Job was the central character in a spiritual wager between Satan and God. In other words, Job’s experiences was instrumental to fulfill God’s plans.
God has good plans for all of us. It’s just that humans are sometimes too short-sighted to even glimpse the bigger picture of which is God’s wishes.
There are other inspiring stories found in the Bible. As a Christian, you just need to give it time and get into the habit of reading the Bible on a daily basis. You’ll find yourself having a more positive outlook in life as a reward of your dedication.
