life's tug

I came across this poem, ‘Life’s Tug of War’, the other day.  I read it once, and then read it twice.  I can relate to its description of life.  There are positives and there are negatives.  Every life is faced with that.  Nothing in life is guaranteed, either it is or either it isn’t, either it will or either it won’t, either it can or either it can’t...  You can’t control the good and you can’t control the bad.  There will always be a tug of war.  But, you can change your life.  It will still have the positives and it will still have the negatives.  

But, you can your life.  How?  You can become a Christian.  How?  If you confess your sins, believe in Jesus Christ, accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you will be saved.  This website explains the road to salvation, the acceptance of Jesus Christ:

Life’s Tug of War
Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind.
Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind.
Life can be blissful and happy and free.
Life can put beauty in the things that you see.
Life can place challenges right at your feet.
Life can make good of the hardships we meet.
Life can overwhelm you and make your head spin.
Life can reward those determined to win.
Life can be hurtful and not always fair.
Life can surround you with people who care.
Life clearly does offer its ups and its downs.
Life’s days can bring you both smiles and frowns.
Life teaches us to take the good with the bad.
Life is a mixture of happy and sad.
Take the life that you have and give it your best.
Think positive be happy let God do the rest.
Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet.
Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet.
To yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall.
Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all..
Take the love that you’re given and return it with care.
Have faith that when needed it will always be there.
Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see.
Take life’s simple pleasures let them set your heart free.
The idea here is simply to even the score.
As you are met and faced with Life’s Tug of War.

If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."  Romans 10:9-10
