More often than not, we complain
About the challenges and problems, we face
Not knowing it is part of God’s plan
To bring us to a better place
The stones, the rocks, the gravel
Our feet endure along the way
Are the very materials we’ll require
To build a Chapel where we play
Songs of victory to our God
There is a reason for everything. Any part of life is a challenge. But, God’s plan is different from our plan. In fact, His plan is even better and grander than ours! God has a way to orchestrate everything. These challenges that we are faced with is a process of looking to God without drowning or suffocating in pain along the way. The reason is that God doesn’t want us to fail or give up. This is also a way for Him to teach us that we need to learn how to rely on Him and be fit for His Kingdom. 1 Samuel 18:2 states:
“And from that day, Saul kept David with him and did not let him return to his father’s house. Then Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him as himself. And Jonathan removed the robe he was wearing and gave it to David, along with his tunic, his sword, his bow, and his belt.”
These stepping stones are a way for us to become wiser and smarter in these challenges that are thrown at us. All the problems and issues we experience become the source to a solution. Instead of avoiding these challenges, we should welcome these challenges with courage. No matter how difficult life is, we need these conflicts and oppositions in our life to help us grow into better men, women, and children of God.
May God Bless You All.
