Facing Struggle: "Your struggle is part of your story."
Well, let's look on the bright side. Doesn't the sun shines to give us light and warmth? Does it always last? No, it doesn't last but so does darkness. Light and darkness has no relationship but they both serve their purpose. The sun gives us light during the day to do and enjoy things that we like or which cannot be most effectively done during the night. The day is overshadowed each night by darkness mainly so that we might have rest. In the same light, struggle has no relationship with your times of happiness and bliss in life but yet, they serve their purpose.
Your struggle is not your destiny. It's only part of the process of reaching it. Let me explain. A good story is made out of a good plot. Out of the plot comes the theme through the experiences of the character. In order to create a great theme you must have an appropriate and interesting setting. So without the struggle, you will not learn and grow, then your life will have no theme. Therefore you will have nothing to give. But through your struggle God can teach you how to grow. He is in the process of creating a theme or an end for your life's story, so remarkable, no human mind could imagine. (I must note again, Jeremiah 29:11)
So don't be disturbed by the struggle. Just look right at it and face it with a smile (because you know why). 😊 What really matters is the outcome, not the problem. But you must accept the problem, deal with it accordingly in order to have a good result.
