I am guessing that there are many people for whom life is a daily challenge. You are not the only person for whom the act of living is a not easy, there are those who struggle with their health, there are those who struggle with finances, there are those who feel oppressed because of their skin color, their faith, their nationality and yes even their politics.

All these challenges are real. All these challenges can be overcome. None of these challenges define us. We are all human beings created in the image of God. All His attributes are shown in His creations. So, be proud of where you are from and where you are today. Be proud of all that you are.

Yet, be willing to admit that you are not a completed work of the Lord. Be willing to learn about what your shortcomings are. Be willing to accept constructive criticism. Above all, be willing to accept the sovereignty of the Lord and surrender to His will for you.

Peace in your situation comes from a willingness to accept who you are, what you are and where you are and then surrendering it all to the Lord. Allowing the Lord free access ensures that your life will be filled with peace and joy.
