Life is not going to be lived on a flowery bed of ease. A man can build a life in a manner that he wants and almost be happy until something, or someone external from his plan changes his plans. His neighborhood is no longer neighborly, job becomes a plantation, financial institution leaks private information, degree is not worth the paper its printed on, etc. This journey called life will have some bumps in the road.
What's A Man To Do?
Learn to be content in whatever circumstance that you find yourself in. Learn how to make do with a little, and how to make do with a lot; whether well fed or hungry, whether in abundance, or in need. Learn the secret of being content: obtain your strength in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:11-13).
"Unless the Lord builds a house, its builders labor over it in vain;
unless the Lord watches over a city, the watchman stays alert in vain (Psalm 127:1)
