Everything that God has created is to try us, to bring out the best of us in our souls. That is the adventure of life, one of the divine purposes of life and everyone adventure is different, unique. You must be prepared to deal with all problems of health, mind and soul by commonsense methods and faith in God, knowing that in life or death your soul remains the same, a soul that belongs to God.
Never let life beat you down. Beat life! if you have a strong will you can overcome all difficulties in your life. In the midst of trials you can conquer the problems. Many people are afraid of life’s problems or taking decisions, the best thing to do is to never fear them, for I have always prayed “Dear God may you give me the power to overcome my difficulties and fears”. This prayer will work miracles in your life.
You are made in God’s image, to believe your tests are more difficult than your divinity is an illusion. Remember, no matter what your tests are, you are never too weak to fight and pray. God will not suffer you to be tempted more than you are able to bear. Look at the greatest saints of our millennium, they all had more troubles than we could imagine, but they never gave up. One by one by the power of faith they overcame those obstacles. Why can’t we use that same determination?
Use every trial that comes to you as an opportunity to improve yourself. When passing through the difficulties and tests of life, you usually become angry and rebellious thinking “why should this happen to me?”. Instead you should think of every trial as a pick axe with which you will dig into the soil of your consciousness and release the fountain of divine strength that you have within your soul. Each test brings out a hidden power that is within you, God made you in His image to learn his qualities and powerful love.
To fly away from your problems may seem the easiest solution, but you will get stronger when you wrestle with a strong problem. The one who doesn’t have difficulties will never grow in life. And a life without problems would be no real life at all, with no incentive to improve ourselves and develop our potential to travel one day to the kingdom of God.
Smile at the world with a smile from within. Learn to be happy in difficulties, use your will power to conquer and crush your tests. The real successes are those who are gain outside of material wealth and those only come when you can learn the lessons of the troubles that happen in times of adversity.
Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
