I remind myself of this daily, especially when I encounter disappointments. My best friend always says everything happens for a reason and it truly does. You may not like the lesson that you learned from a hurtful situation but it is God’s way of shaping and molding you into the person you are meant to become. Your purpose cannot be fulfilled without trials and tribulations that result in testimonies.
Today, I say take it all in stride. You will experience setbacks, disappointments, hurt, pain and so much more. The key is to never look back, only look forward. Take the time to analyze and see what you are meant to take away from every situation you encounter and grow from it. Life is hard and you won’t always be able to handle everything logically and rationally, but just keep on keeping on.
