That latest blow that took you by surprise… Don’t let it take you under. Though situations may send us reeling and we may almost lose our balance, our challenge is to get steady on our feet, take the necessary time to regroup after taking that deep breath, letting it out slowly, pray to the Father for guidance/assistance/direction, and then become more determined than ever to push forward and march on in and towards our victory. We can’t fool ourselves, though. If we keep facing the same types of problems over and over again, we have to be honest and see if there is a lesson in it that we haven’t quite learned. The fact is, if that’s the case, we’ll continue to face those issues until we pass the test. Sometimes the lessons are hard. Sometimes it seems that the lessons aren’t fair. Sometimes it seems like your solution or reaction is the correct one and you shouldn’t be facing this over and over again. Be honest with yourself. Take time to pray to and listen for God’s direction. He knows what He has in store for you once you jump this hurdle. It’s all a part of the process. Go with the flow… learn and grow… then get up and GO!
