Overcoming Difficulties

It's so easy to get bogged down in negativity when bad things happen, but we always need to ask ourselves if there's a bigger reason why this is happening. In the grand scheme of things, the biggest growth opportunities are often the most painful.

When you're in a difficult place, realize that it's bigger than you. We so often think we can take care of matters that only God can take care of. Imagine God telling you, "Don't worry, just let me guide you. I'll take care of you, if you let me."

The second thing to realize is that this may not be about you. I know that's hard to process when something is clearly affecting you, but you just might be a player in someone else's journey. As much as it pains you to see what's going on, know that there will come a time when the difficulties end.

It's only in realizing that you can't control difficult situations that you find peace. Instead of looking at it through the lens of frustration, try to look at it through the lens of love. Know that everything is happening exactly the way it's supposed to, and when it's time for you to understand it, you will.

In love and light,
