Cancel your pity party!

by Yvette van Niekerk

We read in the Message 1 Peter 4 verses 12 to 13 “Glory Just Around the Corner.   Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.”

Honestly, it has been a tough week for me, my emotions have been up and down, and I was going through stuff. I wonder how you cope when life puts the squeeze on you? We know that there are testing times, and it is a regular thing. We need testing and trials in our lives to keep us real, to help us grow, and our spiritual lives need to build. The apostle Paul said “Every detail works to your advantage and God’s glory: more and more grace, more and more people, more and more praise! So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.” 2 Corinthians 4: 15 – 17 MSG.

I never truly understand how people go through life, looking magnificent, and it seems they don’t have a care in the world. Then I realized they are hiding their feelings, and you cannot see their pain, they wear masks and are protecting the hurt and pain within. None of us can see inside each other, and it looks perfect on the outside. If we knew what blessings God has stored for each of us, we would press on, look up and stay focused. Let us not give up and sit in our pity party and start turning our attention to the one who can change our destiny. God the Father, our Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.


Heavenly Father thank You, for giving us the strength to hold on, the courage to face new challenges and the hope for tomorrow. We love and adore You, Lord with all of our hearts, soul and mind. in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen

I say I am a Christian wife, an Author, Radio Presenter, a Blogger, a mother, and stepmother, a granny, and a Data Capture and Personal Assistant. I absolutely and unconditionally love the LORD my God, and my husband and children. I love to write devotionals about the Word of God – the Bible. I like to incorporate my feelings and understanding in my blogs. We all face challenges don't we, and for me, it is just as difficult as for the next person. I also get frustrated and irritated and cry, and after everything I have tried, I turn back to God. I seem to learn the hard way, just like a little child always wanting to try it myself before I ask Daddy for help. I would say that I am a people's kind of person, I feel their pain, and I love to laugh with them. I always aspire to see the very best in people, never judging and still considering what they might be facing as people there and then. On meeting people, I always place them in the highest bracket on my scale. I believe the very best of each person. I do hope you love reading my blogs and seeing what I am doing on my web page. In the precious name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I bless you.
