A Story by Toni

Sometimes life happens. Things happen when you're not expecting them to happen. Life takes you on a ride full of ups and down, some days are going to be great, and some days you are going to wish you could stay sleeping and not get out of bed, but later on you'll be thankful that you did.  

On those days where strength to get up arise, when we feel like we are just holding on by glue, God is the strength that holds us together. To me, the beautiful thing about God is that on these days, His small acts of Grace keep us going- The serenity of prayer, the faithfulness of friends, the security of home here on earth, random acts of kindness from strangers, the sunshine, the act of laughing- they are all small acts of Grace from someone who blesses us more than we deserve. Sometimes the world tries to beat us down, when the world forgets that there is a God that is bigger than anything that life will throw at us.

Author's Note

Been having a rough few weeks. Here is me being transparent, here is my life. God is great, bigger than anything that can come my way.
