LIFE CHALLENGES: STEPPING STONES OR CONCRETE WALLS?

After spending over 3 decades on earth, I can boldly say that I have had my fair share of life’s challenges. Different stages of growth have specially packaged and customized periods of test.

At first, I would throw tantrums, fuss excessively and cry my heart out. At other times, I would look for who to blame in my search for cheap relief.

Unfortunately, this lasted longer than it should have. Thankfully, change came when I met Jesus. Not the Jesus you mention when you receive a bad news. Or the Jesus you claim so as to let others know that you are a card-carrying Christian. I met Jesus and willingly let Him into my heart as Lord, Saviour, Lover, and King.

After my encounter with Him, the challenges did not reduce in intensity, but I did not stagger under their weight any more. Through the word of God (Bible), He prepares me for what is ahead. Through His colleague (Holy Spirit) He ministers sweet peace to my heart.

I am no longer afraid of life’s furnace of fire; the Trinity IS with me.

Then King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished; and he rose in haste and spoke, saying to his counselors, “Did we not cast three men bound into the midst of the fire?” They answered and said to the king, “True, O king.” “Look!” he answered, “I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire; and they are not hurt, and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”

Daniel 3:24-25 NKJV

N.B: If you are tired of the burden of care, let Jesus come into your heart. No need to bear it alone. Just say, “Jesus, I really need you in my life. Please come in today and take over. Thank you”
