One thing that has actually changed for the good in my life; is that I don’t panic and fall apart like I used to, when trouble came my way. With all I’ve been through in my life, there were days when it didn’t take much for me to fall to pieces with the problem. One thing I can say about our problems; is that God does use them to increase us in strength; so that with each situation that may arise; we are more equipped and able to cope, with what has hit us head on.
When I look back on the very dark and dismal moments of pain and deep heartache; I also remember a time, when I felt as though God was taking me through a spiritual boot camp; but as each difficult moment toppled over another; I began to see a new strength and growth take place; that God was truly using to help me over every obstacle in my life.
In Psalm 62:6, we read… “Yes, he alone is my Rock, my rescuer, defense, and fortress—why then should I be tense with fear when troubles come?” Don’t we realize that when we have the most powerful God living within us; then nothing…not even the biggest problem can defeat us; for God alone is the rock we cling to…the One who will always be there to help us through the difficult times, while becoming a shield in Himself; that stands before us; to ward off any fiery darts that Satan may throw our way.
Even though life has been very difficult for me to get through at times; I would never trade an easy life, for the things that God has taught me, through each difficult moment I’ve walked through.
You know…we may experience moments in our lives, when we begin to wonder, when all the pain and heartache will come to its end; but may I encourage us all to not only sit and wait on God to finish what He’s begun; but to also anticipate the good and new things that can truly spring forth, from the troubled moments we experience in life.
