Some moments are scary … like when those unplanned circumstances come, those stressful situations arise, and those pressure-filled decisions loom.
Some moments are joyful … like when life feels in the groove, like it’s heading in a wonderful direction, and it feels as though all is right with the world.
Some moments are discouraging … like when you’re trying everything you can think to do, you can’t work any harder, nothing seems to change and there just aren’t enough hours in the day to get it all done.
Regardless of the emotion, there is also something beautiful happening right along with it.
Within each moment, God is offering a lesson to grab hold of and an opportunity to grow in relationship with Him.
Through our tears, we learn of His comfort, His peace and His gentleness.
Through our laughter, we learn of His friendship, His rest and His goodness.
Through discouragement, we’re drawn back to purpose, to surrender and to trust.
Through scarcity, we’re reminded to look up in faith and believe.
Through abundance, we’re challenged to give, to help, to serve, to offer.
Every moment provides something.
You can either be looking for the lesson or looking for the escape route. It’s up to you.
