Out of Darkness Comes Light

Yes, it is inevitable that we will go through hard times. I see these as challenges and blessings in disguise. These are times of reflection and humility. What can you learn from these challenges? Did you ever think about how much stronger you will become?

Have you ever seen those karate fighters who break blocks of wood or cement with their fists? When these fighters first start out they may break the bones in their hand and arms. When the bones heal, the bones become stronger every time. Eventually the bones are so strong that it is possible to break a block of cement.

And so it is the same with people. We may fall and we may fail, but every time we get back up we are stronger and wiser. Every time something "bad" happens, think about the silver lining. It may be God's way of keeping us humble.

Whatever darkness you may encounter through this journey of life, always keep in mind that you will see light again. It is in knowing this that will give you a sense of peace. If you are going through some hard times, it’s a good idea to jot down things that you are grateful for. This will put life back into perspective. Think about how much worse your situation could be. Think about all those people in the world who may not have what you have.

As Forest Gump’s mother said, “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re gonna get.” Who knows, tomorrow may be the day you get your big break and overcome the obstacles that keeps you from having a happy life.

Let the light in….
