We all go through things that are uncomfortable.
There’s that troubling coworker who gets on your nerves.
There’s a dream that has taken longer than you thought
To come true. Generally, it feels like you’re caught
In a trap of frustration. No person deserves
Such a thing, but it seems it’s not preventable.
You can’t pray away everything that bothers you.
God uses inconveniences, difficulties,
And delays to see if you choose to Grow Through It
Rather than getting bitter. If you can submit
To the test you’ve been given, then you will with ease
Get the insight and strength needed to follow through.
Our faith is tested in the fire of affliction.
We don’t grow so much in the good times. We grow in
Difficult situations. It’s not a mistake
When someone does you wrong or you get a bad break.
If you choose not to hold a grudge, you will begin
To live life with a little less contradiction.
Grow Through It! Go the extra mile. Take the high road
And forgive. This is how to use God’s loving grace.
Build your spiritual muscles. Don’t get upset
Over struggles that haven’t even happened yet.
Do not be afraid to look challenge in the face.
Grace comes to you when you’re in the receptive mode.
