Tough Times

Life isn't and wasn't meant to be easy, I think everyone whether they admit it or not, knows this. Yet we complain when things go wrong to us or we have a bad day or something didn't turn out as expected. Life is tough but after each tough time we get stronger and we are able to push ourselves that much more knowing that we can handle that next tough time ahead.

My life hasn't been easy in fact its been the opposite of easy at times. I was bullied all through school because of the way I acted, spoke differently, what I believed in, and how bad I was at sports. I was bullied physically, verbally and over the internet. Each time I struggled to get through it but I managed, I still wonder why I was bullied but the fact is I know that God only throws at us as much as we handle even though at the time it doesn't feel like it.  I love the first few verses of Psalm 27 as they let me know that God no matter what is on my side, the whole Psalm is great but its the first 3 verses that I really love and have written all over my room. Times can be tough but with God by your side nothing seems to hard to overcome

Psalm 27 (NIV)

Of David. 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—
   whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
   of whom shall I be afraid?
 2 When the wicked advance against me
   to devour[a] me,
it is my enemies and my foes
   who will stumble and fall.
3 Though an army besiege me,
   my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me,
   even then I will be confident.
