Sometimes when you’re faced by obstacles, life seems pointless. Sometimes when you attempt to live your best life and adversity continues to hit, life seems futile. Sometimes when you are walking in the light and it seems as though it’s cloudy, you begin to feel lifeless, tired, drained, attacked, defeated. Guess what, you’re not.
Everything that seems bad to you is not bad for you. I know you have heard the saying, everything that’s good to you, isn’t good for you. Same thing applies in terms of all things that seem unbearable, unfavorable. We have to go through in order to get through. Sometimes we become complacent in our lives, but there’s greater inside of us and we know this, but do not know what steps to take. We may not believe. We may be gripped with fear. There is more potential inside of us that we will not tap into at times, unless we are coached to do so. That’s all God does. He knows there is vision, there is implementation and there is a gift that needs to be shared with others who do not know how to set themselves free. You are the hope dealer. You are the rescuer. You are the lifeguard. Sadly, if YOU do not operate, no one will be saved.
I was trapped at a job for four years, full of misery and anxiety. Before beginning the job, I was excited, felt pretty blessed to be chosen, filled with ideas and anticipated building relationships and changing lives. Unfortunately, I worked under a controlling dream snatcher who wavered and chastised from an extremely toxic place. I felt stuck, hurt and stressed most of the days working there. While I was in that situation, I knew my future was going to be amazing, but I was anxious. God allowed the discomfort and taught me a lesson on how not to kill dreams, but build individuals, genuinely care. While doing so, it takes nothing away from your present or future. Circumstances may ensue hopelessness but they are there to build your spiritual muscles.
Lifting people up is sure to bless the individual who is doing the lifting. It is an act of selflessness, humility, leadership, kindness, concern. Life may seem pointless when things are unfortunate, but endure the journey. Be present. Learn the lesson. Use the teachings in days to come. Share it with others. Isn’t that what life is all about! Lifting others as you lift self. Go! Live! Love! Laugh! Be for real!
