what if there was no sadness?

what if there was no pain?

what if there was no sorrow?

what if there was no illness?

what if there were no struggles?

what if there was no evil?

what if there was no hunger?

 

what would all of that mean?

  1. Thanks for sharing….. without sadness and sorrow, one would not seek and know true happiness, without pain and illness one would not seek and know true comfort and ease, without struggle and hunger one would not seek and know peace and fulfillment… and evil, well that is an adjective conjured up in the minds of many to describe someone or some thing… they all present challenges for one to deal with, that is life… 🙂

  2. We would take everything for granted and expect perfection all the time! That could be boring and the absence of thankfulness, faith, and hope for better days would make us all turn into robots. 😉 Personally, I have learned to be so much more thankful for my “good days” after being diagnosed with MS. You got us thinking… Great Post!!! 🙂

  3. I don’t know if we would be able to feel grateful or experience joy if everything was smooth sailing. I believe the human spirit is most beautiful when it is overcoming enormous obstacles. Our bodies may be broken, but our spirit can still soar. I recently found a verse that helped me. Maybe it will you too. 1 Peter 1:3-9 I won’t put the whole verse here but this is the main thought:

    6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. 8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.

  4. I struggle with staying positive too in the midst of my chronic pain. But changing perspective – trying to change the mind set of thinking everything in your life is negative. And think of the positives that the negative has brought. My chronic pain put the brakes on my life. It’s no longer the rushing through life, rather stopping and living life literally by the minute. Everything happens for a reason – and God doesn’t make mistakes! 😊🙏🏽
