Flavors of Life (Jeremiah 31:13)

Then young women will dance and be glad,
    young men and old as well.
I will turn their mourning into gladness;
    I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.

Life has its flavors. Sometimes it is as dark as a rocky road chocolate, at times it is as clean and peaceful as vanilla ice cream, Life has various weathers too. It can be windy, stormy or sunny. Without variety, our existence would be so boring and plain.

We are encountering different life flavors as of the moment. Some are on the verge of success, some are still on the way to fulfilling their dreams while others are facing the bitterness of failure and are at the lowest point this time. The verse above is for those who are experiencing the latter.

Most of the people who became successful are those who failed and were rejected. Most of those who prospered in life are those self-made persons who were once paupers. Most of the strongest persons are those who had encountered many problems in life. These people who are on the lowest moment of their life draw closer to God more than those whose life is almost perfect. Their tough experiences would mould them to become better, stronger and wiser. For God will give us any trial that we cannot handle, we should always be optimistic and believe His words. He said, “There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning”. Hardships will never stay permanent. One day, difficulties will vanish and bliss will come to the picture.
