If It's Not One Thing Then It's Another
"IF IT'S NOT ONE THING THEN IT'S ANOTHER..."
Have you ever said that referring to one challenge after another? The couple pictured here emerged out of the fog to find a tree down in their path. Now, in reality neither the fog or fallen tree are true problems but they represent what we often deal with day in and day out. Do you ever get tired of it? I know I do.
One positive to this scenario is that these two individuals have someone with whom they can walk through their "challenges." When you face difficult times, do not retreat and become a hermit. Seek out caring friends and family.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 reads, "A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
The second positive is that while things may be unclear right now, you can rest assured that in hindsight you'll see why God took you through the fog, and you will recognize His wisdom and purpose in it. He is often building your character to become more Christ-like.
We also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character. (Romans 5:3-4)
Thirdly, the tree is only blocking the path -- there is a very clear route to take around it, even if it is inconvenient and indirect. God will certainly make a way through, under, around or over anything that comes your way. It might seem overwhelming but He's got your back, but most importantly He's got your heart.
Trust God in the journey... regardless of its speed bumps, slowdowns, potholes and detours.
Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You. ~Psalm 9:10
