Don’t ask for an easier life. Ask to be a stronger person.
How many times have you asked God to make your life easier? I know that for me it's been more then I want to admit. Even those who claim to be well educated Christians ask God to take away some of their obstacles or problems. However, some of God's greatest gifts to us our the troubles that come our way. He is the most powerful of all powers so if it is his will he could give you a life without any adversities. He can change your life for the better in an instants. However that is not what He has promised us.
What he has promised us is that He will never leave our side when we turn to Him. He will carry us through times when we feel we can no longer walk. He will give us the strength we need to get through the impossible and make it possible. All we need to do is trust in him and ask him for strength. There is no need to ask him to make things easier, because if we have the strength given to us by God we can climb the highest mountain and fight the hardest fight.
Throughout my cancer adventure I could count hundreds of times when I did not think I could get through another day. Although those seconds of thoughts have been changed quickly by the strength that I have asked God to give me. Every treatment, every scan, every nasty medicine, every injection I give myself, every pain I have, every medical bill I can not pay and every time I hear one of my loved ones cry because of my cancer are times that I wish would just go away. However, I know that my trust in God is what gets me through them. And when those times come, I close my eyes and pray:
"God give me the strength to overcome this roadblock. Help me make what seems to be impossible become possible. Let me be an example to others by showing them the gifts that I have received from my cancer. Please Lord give me your strength."
