It`s the rubbing that brings out the shinning


Life has a lot of challenges that we all go through day in and day out. We are left with so many questions and most of them we aren’t able to answer at all. I have personal experiences in my own life that, are too painful to dwell on and keep thinking about them, but I tell myself it had to be to be that example.

From the very first day of our birth, we all come across different types of adversities. They can be sickness, failures, setbacks, problems, and losses like jobs, family, financial loss or loss of dear loved ones. I know what it is to walk on knife edge and wonder what tomorrow is going to become. You and me are no exception to all these and many more of life`s turbulent times.

But what I have learnt and not the easy way though is that, how a person handles such adversities is what makes the difference in one`s life. It is always important that we lean on God`s grace, during such times nothing can take you through only but God`s grace, One needs to remain focused and concentrate on the positive, then one can become stronger from within. During such times strength from without will fail you but that which is form within can make you strong by each day. We must also bear in mind that adversities might taste bitter but surely these bless a person with enormous opportunities to grow up physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. If you remain focused on the positive, you can make adversities work for you, instead of working against you, though I will admit its worthy it to lean on the grace of God. If we look closely at each adversity, we become wiser to life`s ways as each adversity brings new insight. In real sense, tough situations take us to a pathway of new growth as human beings.

By focusing on the positive we begin to see the blessings appear-sometimes not immediately but later that we would not have received had we not been handed tough times. That’s why it’s important to note that when you have managed to overcome life`s grave problems, do not spend time remembering the difficult times, concentrate on the joy of having passed yet another of life`s tests. When you emerge from a long period of medical treatment, do not brood on the suffering you endured, think instead of the Grace and blessings of God that allowed you to be cured. There is no justifiable reason to date three, two or more women at one time simply because you are having relational problems, nothing will ever substitute character, we have to guard jealously over our characters. Troubles don’t last forever, its only but for a while, but your name will always be remembered so be cautious about how you walk with the Lord. The bible says Enoch walk with God and he was not….

Lets us continue in His grace and fervency in prayer and supplication without fainting or tiring. For He cometh soon, watch ye therefore and pray.

Mercy ad Peace to you all.
