“Infuse your life with action, don’t wait for it to happen. Make it happen, make your own future, make your own hope, make your own love and whatever your belief, honour your creator not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen yourself, right now, right down here on earth. Bradley Whitford. When things fall apart like broken glasses, it gives you the regrets that things happening in your life where not to be so and gives you a flash that things in your life can be dismantled within circles of life. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam once said “we should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us.” When climbing a mountain your aim is to reach the top. On the mountain rocks, stones can be found.
In climbing the mountain to reach the top, you need to step on the rocks and the stones. These same rocks and stones can make you fall to the ground. These same rocks and stones can hurt you. Believe me there are times or instances in our life where we don’t even wish to get up from our bed to even brush our teeth, there are times you feel that the moon should never disappear for the sun to come. You will be in situations, such as not being able to get admission to your dream school, a situation where your business has collapsed, or a situation where a company is running at a loss. Situation where your income is not enough to pay utility bills, situation where you can’t even afford nice things for your kids because they are too expensive, situation where your mum or dad is dead and it becomes hard to have good shelter and livelihood, situation where nobody cares about you and you feel that you are just a waste. Situation where you are sexually abused and each and every day reminds you of that terrible incident. Situation where you never had anyone to appreciate you for anything you do or have done. Situation where the addiction is not going, you keep going to rehab and it is still getting worse. Situation where you’ve tried all your best to pass your exam to get into college or university but nothing is prevailing. https://enerriseinspi.com/index.php/2019/09/22/your-temptatiion/
Situation where for years you are still facing the losses of your properties and wealth. Situation where conflict has ravaged your home where no harmony and unity exist within your family. Situation where irresponsible behavior of your child is driving you crazy. Situation where you’ve fallen into the dark scenes of life and you don’t know where to turn to. Situation where you try harder and harder to breakthrough your difficulties and challenges but nothing seems to be moving.The mountain is never smooth as our life path, when challenges and struggles begin to crumble you and immediately begin to feel that your life has scattered into different directions and dimensions .You begin to wish that this reality of your life shouldn’t be so. Ironically with nature and life, things happen in our life to make our head straight, things happen in our life to remove unwanted stuff from our life, things happen in our life for us to know our stand with respect to life. Yeah the debt you incurred, it happens for you to know who your true friends are, the ones who could help you willingly in terms of crisis, the accident that happened to you , God wanted you to see your true loved ones who will stay with you in your hard times. Your marriage was at the verge of collapsing, God made you go through that difficulty because he wanted you to notice that you shouldn’t rely on people for happiness but you should rely on him for happiness in your marriage.
The difficulties and pain you are going through is something that is propelling you to see your success and happiness, never stop until you have finished, don’t stop the race because you are tired, don’t stop the race because you are hurt . Have hundred percent faith that your pain will open your eyes to see your gain. Yes in child delivery when the woman begins to feel a profuse pain that is when the baby wants to come out of the womb. Don’t let your pain stuck you in life but let your pain make you gain your desires in life.
