The more we align our lives with God’s character and with His truth, the stronger our lives can become. So many of us are adjusting to pain in our lives—the pain of disappointment, the pain of feeling lonely and abandoned, or the pain of failure and setbacks. And while those are real issues, maybe all we really need is an adjustment. To get our priorities back in line with God’s priorities. To shift our hopes onto His shoulders. To live with His strength and with His joy. Sometimes this means we need to get bent up a bit. We need to be pushed and stretched, but in the end, a life aligned with God is the healthiest and strongest life we can live.
