Thoughts on the Trials of Life

Do you ever find yourself lashing out irrationally at people, just because you’re having a bad day? Well, this has been me over the last few weeks. My whole world seemed to cave in on me suddenly, when I learned something about the past that I didn’t know before. This little bit of information has literally changed everything for me and I am not sure what to do about it. I feel like I am losing control of myself and plummeting like a fighter jet that has been shot down. Life is never easy is it? Just when we think we have it all together, our flight path changes directions and we are thrown off course. Why do you think this happens? Do you think it’s God’s way of waking us up? Is He doing this to cause us to turn in a new direction? Is He trying to point out a weakness in ourselves that we just never saw before? Does God even have anything to do with this; or is it by chance that things like this happen? I tend to believe for the most part, that most things happen for a reason. I believe that God is always looking out for our well-being, even in the darkest moments of our lives. He thinks eternally, we think years. I am generally a very open-minded, positive person. But am I really? If I was, than why is this affecting me so much? Sometimes I wish the world would just stop turning for a moment so that I could jump off. The drama in life is just overwhelming and absolutely painful at times. Maybe time is the only real cure. God’s time…

  1. Thanks Mirja,
    In regards to this particular trial, forgiveness was the key and I had a very successful outcome. Thank goodness we always have choices; we just have to follow our heart and make the right choice.

  2. Michelle, I really do believe that traumas in life, be they physical or emotional will lead you to another path. It is our own decision whether
    to look up and make it positive or whether to go downhill and see only the
    dark.
    Keep looking for the stars and face up to your fears and anguish.
    Best wishes to you

  3. As cliche as it may sound, I believe everything truly happens for a reason, and God will never give you anything He doesn’t think you can handle. I know. I have been through many trials in my years,and I’m still here. Although I fight the battle every day, I know He’s watching over me. Hang in there…and trust…

    1. Thanks, I am trying to stay positive and I do have faith that all will work out in the end. It’s not as if I’m gonna let Satan win this battle! I believe what your saying, but nowhere in the Bible does it say that God will never give us more than we can handle. So I have never really believed in that myself. I do believe, that He will never ask us to endure more than He is willing to endure Himself. 🙂
