Open Your Eyes And See What You’re Missing

When nothing else seems to make sense, I will find encouragement in the little things that life offers. I firmly believe that all things happen for a reason. With the good, we are able to easily embrace it, and yet with the bad sometimes we have to dig deep to find the strength to endure it. However, with all things we should try to find the hand of God working.

There has to be a message in my mess. Life can sometimes be painful. It may even seem hard and burdensome at times. Though when things are at their most difficult points, don’t allow yourself to be deceived into believing this is all that life has to offer. If we will only hang around long enough, then will the purpose of the fight reveal itself.

Buried deeply in the storm clouds of my life has been freedom. There has also been deliverance, separation, and new beginnings. If I had aborted the process and thrown in the towel at the first sign of turbulence, I may not have received these things. If God didn’t love me, I may not have been granted grace and given a second chance to get it right.

In hindsight, I’ve learned that the pain had to happen in order for me appreciate the joy. I had to be denied some things so that I would appreciate what I already had. I had to be knocked down and even knocked out so I would know what it felt like to get my butt whooped. I’ve had to suffer and watch my love ones suffer so that God could show me just how strong I am. I’ve had to make mistakes, sometimes the same ones over and over, just to get the message. God knows how hard my head is.

The most important thing that I have learned from the trials of life is to open my eyes. There is no way possible to win a battle if you go through it with your eyes closed. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted by the little things, they will always be there. Instead, focus your eyes on what you think can’t happen or what you believe is impossible, and you may see this is where your life continues.
