Many times we face difficulties, uncertainties and challenges that threaten to destroy our relationships, marriages and life. What surprises me most times when I go through days of having series of challenges is by just sleeping and waking up the next day, everything return back to normal as if I never had challenges the previous day.

A day makes a lot of difference in our lives. If you are having a difficult day, never give up and think your life is a difficult one, its just one day! If you endure till the breaking of a new one, you will see that most of your problems have passed along with the previous one miraculously.

The scripture says, weeping may endure for a night but joy always comes in the morning. Many of us will agree with this if we can cast our minds back to the many mornings our challenges at work, our quarrels at home, our fights with our friends etc have been miraculously resolved for us by a new day.

A Message Of Hope

My child, I have a message for you today. Let me whisper it in your ear so any storm clouds that may arise will shine with glory, and the rough places you may have to walk will be made smooth. It is only four words, but let them sink into your inner being, and use them as a pillow to rest your weary head.“This is my doing.”

Have you ever realized that whatever concerns you concerns Me too? “For whoever touches you touches the apple of [my] eye”(Zech.2:8).“You are precious and honored in my sight” (Isa. 43:4).Therefore it is My special delight to teach you.

I want you to learn when temptations attack you, and the enemy comes in “like a pent-up flood” (Isa.59:19),that “this is my doing” and that your weakness needs My strength, and your safety lies in letting Me fight for you.

Are you in difficult circumstances, surrounded by people who do not understand you, never ask your opinion, and always push you aside? “This is my doing.” I am the God of circumstances. You did not come to this place by accident—you are exactly where I meant for you to be.

Have you not asked Me to make you humble? Then see that I have placed you in the perfect school where this lesson is taught. Your circumstances and the people around you are only being used to accomplish My will. Continue reading A Message Of Hope

Blessing in Disguise

“If you are going through hell, keep going” (Winston Churchill). Oh how true this statement is, because like all truly great people know that inside the difficulties lie the solution, or to put it again in the words of Winston Churchill; “We shall draw from the heart of the suffering itself, the means of inspiration and survival.”  So friends as you go about your daily pursuits, seeking ways to live your greatest lives, I want you to remember these:

Every difficult task that comes across your path—every one that you would rather not do, that will take the most effort, cause the most pain, and be the greatest struggle—brings a blessing with it. And refusing to do it regardless of the sacrifices, time, and effort you have to put in, is to miss the blessing.

Every difficult stretch of road on which you have to follow in the pursuit of your life calling leads unquestionably to blessings. And they are blessings you will never receive unless you travel the steep and thorny path.

Every battle you encounter in your life, where you are required to fight, sometimes with the last of your strength, has the possibility of victory that will prove to be a rich blessing to you. And every heavy burden you are called upon to lift hides within itself a miraculous secret of strength.

Sometimes the darkness in our lives is worse, because we cannot even understand what we are doing. Therefore we are unable to see any beauty or any possible good arising from our experience. Yet if we are faithful to forge ahead and “if we do not give up”, someday we will know that we discovered our truest selves during those days when it was the darkest.
