We never know what’s in store for us until it arrives. It may arrive as a tiny, little package wrapped in a bow or a shoebox full of cards. We may open a door only to find what we hoped for was lost or what we had, now gone. Happy or sad, trial or triumph, we must remember it’s all for our good.
We’ll never understand the reason behind everything, but someone will. Someday all of the reasons we’ve gone through tribulation in our lives will make sense. For out of our troubles often come blessings for others. In our weakness, somehow others find strength.
Life isn’t going to be easy every single day, but it can be a blessing. It’s all in how you look at each situation, each moment, each battle. Your reaction to them all is what others will see. It is through your strength that others will begin to see light in the darkness.
I am blessed to have some amazing people in my life who truly believe in taking ahold of what life has handed them, regardless of what it is. They take it, deal with it and eventually, move on. Enjoying the journey along the way is what makes the hard times less difficult. When they arrive, it’s almost as if we feel prepared.
I am thankful for my life; for both the difficult moments as well as the easy times. Both are equally as beautiful in the eyes of another. When one moment passes, another comes along, day in and day out. I often wonder what the breeze will blow in next, then it comes. I don’t think I’m ready. Then I pray. I’ve been preparing, not knowing what I was in preparation for. It’s here and I’m not frightened. He brought me to it, now He’ll see me through it. All the moments seem to collide now. A fresh wound on my skin. But it doesn’t hurt. I feel confident it will heal. It’s just a bruise, it will go away. Oh how I never thought this would be me, but there’s no one else it could be. I’m strong. I’m confident. I have faith. I have hope. I have love. God, l may not have asked for this; I do not wish for this, but I accept this. My strength and Your power will shine through this. Why me God? Because You know I can handle this. You are my strength, my light, my hope. All the moments, they come together. I smile. Oh the moments. I smile again. How can I help but smile? You know me so well. I’m here. I’ve got this. I’ll show this world who’s boss.
