Dont ask for things to be easier, ask forthe strength to deal with it

Don’t ask for things to be easier, ask for the strength to deal with it.

I know from personal experience that life can be brutal sometimes, that you can hit rock bottom (for me it was twice) and it feels like the sun will never come out.

In my darkest hours, when I was lost, alone and broken, I prayed and cried out for help. I had nothing else to hold on to, I needed help, I didn’t think I could survive one more day, not even one more second, I needed my situation to change.

I remember crying out, why can’t my life be easier? Why did I have to endure all that I’ve endured?

What I’ve realized since then is that everything that we go through has a lesson in it, but we must learn to look for that lesson. The lesson I learned from this was that I can’t ask for it to be easier, I needed to ask for strength, because there will always be something in life that I will be going through.

These things are here for a reason, to teach me a lesson, as much as I don’t want to be going through it, as painful as it may be, as much as I would like it to go away, I needed this lesson and for me, because I am so hard headed, I need them a few times!

So why was I praying for it to easier? Because we all want our lives to be easier, wouldn’t that be nce? Yes, of course it would but what would that teach you? I believe everything in life teaches you a lesson.

So what would being easy teach you? To be soft, to not learn a lesson, to not be able to handle a life crisis…

Look, I am not saying I could get through all that life keeps throwing at me without God because I know I cannot. What I ask from him now is strength, his strength to know that no matter what I am going through, with him it will be okay. I ask him for faith, to know even though I don’t know what is coming, I will trust him, to care for me. I ask him for gratitude so that I may be able to see all that he has already done for me and know all that he will continue to do for me. I know I will get through it all, I will be able to learn my lesson and know that this too shall pass.

I’ve learned that I am a surviver, that even when I slip and fall, he is there for me. I know that I need to believe even when I can’t see it, even in my darkest hours, I have strength, his strength to keep going.

So today my friends, don’t ask for life to be easy, it is in the trails and turbulence in life, that you learn how much strength you truly have, that your faith grows and that you realize what your made out of….No, don’t ask for it to be easier, today ask for the strength to deal with whatever life has to throw at you.
