It is always uplifting to learn something good or positive. The knowledge, learned even from just an ordinary story of one known to you (just as my story), is most likely to give you hope. And encouragement to dig into your own natural resources of coping.
We should always be open to share our life. You never know who you will be helping at a particular moment.
Yes, each and every one of us has been endowed by God with the ability to hurdle whatever difficulty life has to offer. And all we have to do is consciously allow God into our lives.
God will see us through alright even without us asking Him, but we will be missing the opportunity of facing the coming difficulties with ease if we are not, personally, in touch with God, the one-on-one way.
I know this is quite difficult to decipher, especially those who are not constantly in touch with God, because we tend to get caught in the web of everyday events or happenings in our lives. We tend to do what everybody is doing. And so we unconsciously allow ourselves to get tangled with about anything and with no direction. Until we reach our limit and then we crumble. And that is when we seek God and ask for help.
When we are close to God, uttering prayers sporadically the whole day, as I am wont to doing, every difficulty or challenge we face, can easily be handled. He is always there welcoming us with open arms and He will walk beside us, or carry us, when life becomes harsh.
Just call on Him and always believe, with thanksgiving, that He will never give us something which we can’t carry.
