Struggling?


Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our life.
If God allowed us to go through our life without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been. We could never soar.

I asked for Strength.........
.... and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for Wisdom.........
.... and God gave me problems to solve.

I asked for Prosperity.........
.... and God gave me brain and brawn to work.

I asked for Courage.........
.... and God gave me danger to overcome.

I asked for Love.........
.... and God gave me troubled people to help.

I asked for Favours.........
.... and God gave me opportunities.

I received nothing I wanted.
I received everything I needed.
Good stuff. I should pay more attention to it.

Yeah, I could do without the bad times right now, thank-you-very-much. Or should I say the "challenging" times- or times rife with "opportunities for improvement." heheheh (puking)

-despite the fact that I brought them on myself. It's not supposed to happen to me! heheheheh...yeah, whatever.

Rough afternoon yesterday- I started brooding. Very comfortable place for me, but not where I need to be wallowing. I gotta stay in the solution. Just sometimes it hits me what I've done to myself here recently....sux man.

Amazing that you would post something like this. Like Scott, this is stuff that I am going through and learning. I know this.....Hard times are for us to grow through, not go through.
