Get Your Blessing
Burger King's slogan is 'Have It Your Way.' But, having it your way can sometimes lead you to a place that you don't want to be. You don't have to be in Hell to be going through hell.
Most of the time, things that negatively affect our life span are perceived to humans as 'fun'. Yet, we say that life is short. In actuality, we make our lives short through our actions. This is one example where we want to blame everything that is not ourselves. When something that we perceive as negative happens, many times the blame should be directed to ourselves. True, trouble falls on the just and unjust alike. It is not the trouble that sets the two apart, but it is the way that they handle the trouble.
Sometimes your blessing is hidden in the middle of a hardship. So, if you always try to avoid hard times, you are missing some blessings. Most of the time, there is something intended for you to learn from every hardship. I say 'most' because sometimes one person's disobedience can cause a hardship for many people that are not involved.
You may have been asking for a particular blessing for years. You have waited for the blessing for so long, you have accepted that it will not come. Many times you just need to change the glasses that you view the world through. If you were to change the prescription, of your glasses, you may find that the blessing has always been available. You just may not have been ready for the blessing.
The trials you overcome today, prepares you for bigger trials in the future. So, if you are unwilling to deal with the trials of today, you are securing your failure in the future. Unlearn.
