We imagine life to be some sort of obstacle course. You get pass certain places and gain certain things and you feel accomplished... and in a way it’s like that.
The thing about an obstacle course is the key word—OBSTACLE. There is no avoiding them.
We do our best to avoid the obstacles with hope that we will still get the prizes.
I’ve learned a lot over the past months to a year...
The obstacles though i don’t welcome them and i know NO ONE does BUT they are the only things that get us our greatest prize.
We look at earthly things as rewards and although they are AMAZING don’t get me wrong AT all... i love the blessings i have been given. Earthly things are ONLY temporary. They will pass away.
We have to see the bigger picture. The bigger picture always being Jesus... living in eternity with him. Appreciating our earthly gifts. Showing Christ in all we do and adoring him with all we have.
Our lives as Christians are not meant to be without issues. QUITE THE CONTRARY.
This walk means obstacles... suffering... hurt... all the stuff that we try to avoid.
Our greatest prize comes with these things though. Our issues produce character. They give us great perspective.
“Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”
Romans 5:3-5 ESV
Want the true fullness of life... ENDURE THE UNIMAGINABLE.
No one imagines miscarriage, divorce, a child’s death, job loss, never finding love...
Those are considered the unimaginable.
Those instances give us CHARACTER.
Y’all... don’t think i am just around here welcoming all the problems BUT i am learning to embrace the bad... how can i make the most out of it. How can it draw me closer to my savior.
The unimaginable is not ever really fun BUT YOU CANT IMAGINE HOW IT PAYS OFF IN THE END.
Let’s make the choice to learn to deal with the unimaginable. With the help of our savior... of Course.
Don’t live a life running away from obstacles because you think it will make life better... avoiding situations only makes you live in a state of denial and quite frankly it makes you FAKE. Whenever the obstacles arise... find God in them.
Learn to let him help you deal with the unimaginable.
