When you face obstacle in life pray for strength and when it’s over, have peace in knowing, your prayers have been answered. This is a little inspirational motto of my life that I have tried to follow in the last few years.
I thought long and hard about it today. It makes perfect sense to me. Last few weeks I am going through some tough issues in life, something I won’t get into details. Over time, I have become doomed with anxiety, worry, and fear over them. This is my own personal therapy to help me cope: Life isn’t always easy. If it was, there would be no challenges. With no challenges, we wouldn’t be able to test our strengths or weaknesses. If that was the case, how can we pray for Strength? God doesn’t give us anything we cannot handle.
When God closes one door, he opens another. “If you think you can, you can. If you think you can’t, you can’t” I’ve learned over this short while, not to let a bad experience, or difficult situation take over your life. Although at times, you may feel at your lowest, or you feel scared, or lonely, it’s not fair to ourselves to let our weaknesses get the best of us.
Everything happens for a reason, maybe reasons unknown to us, something maybe from other world which we are yet too naive to understand. If there wasn’t a reason for things to happen, then nothing would have a purpose.
I’ve learned I should thank my lucky stars for what I have, and not worry about “What I don’t have“. For some people, “They have nothing”. Not even stars to feel thankful for. I should feel blessed with what I have the one’s I have besides me always. Although I’ve encountered an “obstacle” in life, I have to keep telling myself – It isn’t and WILL NEVER BE the end of the world for me.
I have to look at the brighter side of things, and be thankful I can still walk, talk, live, love and most of all laugh. There will be times, where I may fall to my knees and surrender to my weaknesses. As long as I remember to Pray, as long as I have few in my life who are in turn always praying, I know I’ll be ok.
Although some things can be a “life changing experience”, just remember – it’s “Only an Experience”. You still have your life. Think about it. I sure did and it helped me to get up.
