‘Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!’ We have all watched Finding Nemo and heard this of Dory. At the time we find it funny but we all have to keep on swimming and we all have to learn to keep on going. It is very important for us to keep on going, to keep on surviving, to keep on coping with whatever life throws at us. It is so easy to just plod along and to live in our own little world but there will be times when it is hard and there will be times when we are lost and don’t know what to do but we keep on going. We keep on going because it is the way of life and we have so much pressure on us. It is easy to live in our own little land and to enjoy the things we do but their will be times when we are ‘drowning’ with all the things around us. We feel like we need to give up and don’t have any energy left but we can’t and we need to just keep on going.
It is hard to just keep on swimming and to keep our heads above water with all the different things that the world throws at us. There are so many things that the world throws at us that are unexpected and we struggle with that it can be hard to just keep swimming and to keep on going. We have to look a certain way, we have to be a certain way, we have to have a certain job, we have to have a certain amount of money, we have to have the latest thing, we have to be ‘perfect.’ It is hard to keep on going when there are so many things that we ‘need’ to have. There are many times in life when we think we can do something but actually we are about to drown and we are about to give up. It is hard but we have to try and keep on swimming.
With the life that we are living it is hard to keep our money good and to be able to make sure that we are living in our means, it is hard to be able to try and do this as there are so many things in the world that we have to do and we need to have to keep up. There are so many people telling us what we need and what we should have but we really don’t need it all. We all have a selfish mindset and it is easy to get sucked into the ways of the world rather than the ways of God and how He wants us to live. There will be times when we fall out with family and friends and there will be times when we feel lonely but we have to keep on swimming and we have to keep on going.
Throughout life there is bound to be trials that we have to get through and some of them we will have people around to help and others we will be on our own. There are times when we feel the need that we want our own space but we need to realise that we do need other people around us to support and help us. Even though there will be times when we need to just keep on swimming there will be times when we need to have family with us too, there will be times when we need to make sure that we have support around. Even with just a little argument here and there does not mean you should cut of all contact but means that you should work harder to keep on going and to live the best life that we can all live.
We can all try and keep on swimming but sometimes that will be hard and it will be challenging but there is a God who is much better than us, there is a God who knows what He is doing, there is a God who will be with us when no one else is, there is a God who provides, there is a God who loves, there is a God who forgives and we need to remember that when we loose hope. We need to remember that God gave us this life and He can take it away, we need to remember that He is the almighty! God will give us the strength each day to keep on going and to keep on having energy to live life.
