Model Holding to God in Difficult Times

In our lives there have been times when people have let us down. When they did not show integrity by doing what they said they would do. Times when we did not do what we tried to do. We have doubtless experienced difficult times in our lives. But, it is essential as we go through these times for us to hold tightly to God. Do not blame Him for the failures of others, or for the times we do not do all we had hoped.

This quote from Billy Graham applies to these times of failure and disappointment. We need to be people who let these times in our lives draw us closer to God - not push us away.

Share with your grandchildren and grown children how difficult and disappointing times in your life helped you experience a closer walk with God. When they hear how you were able to get through those times, they will have hoe for doing the same when they go through them . . . and they will go through failure and disappointment in their lives as well. 

Don't let failure or disappointment cut you off from God or make you think that the future is hopeless. When God closes one door, He often opens another door - if we seek it.
