So usually when you go through things it’s not quite often that you understand why… in my younger days (not that I’m old or anything lol) I went through a lot of things.
Some things because I wasn’t mature and others, I had no control over. During those hard times I didn’t understand why.. I didn’t comprehend that I needed those trials to shape and mold me.
My question and statements back then when something bad happened was “why me!?” Or “it’s just my luck”
I’ve always had this desire to help people, to encourage and uplift them. Show them the silver lining that the naked eye doesn’t always see.
What I learned is, that in order for God to put me in a position to help people I needed to GROW through some things.
YOU HEAR ME!?!
Don’t let anyone else tell you differently. When you go through things.. and grow through them, you get uncomfortable, you feel the sting of the pinch of growth.
One of the important things I think we often miss during our growth season is that we actually need to take time to allow ourselves to grow and get whatever it is that God is trying to get to us or grow us through.
We spend too much time trying to hurry through the growth process that we forget that there’s reason behind the growth.
We rush to fix ourselves when we should be honest with ourselves about what is really going on and be open to being sculpted by the sculptor.
It’s important that we remember what we’re going through could be something that God uses to help another person.
It’s bigger than just you. Somebody, somewhere is depending on your obedience and growth.
You never know what a person is going through or what they’ve been through. Never judge a person off of something you know nothing about. They could be the same person assisting you when you find yourself in a similar position.
Your current struggles/trials are BIGGER than you! Somebody needs you to get what God is trying to teach you in this moment so that you can help them through! You got this!
