This week has been a challenging one to say the least. So many crazy mountains and hurdles have come out of nowhere. Normally I’m the person who helps those around me with errands, encouragement, prayer, etc but this week the tables were turned. It was truly humbling to be in situations where I had to ask for help and in the midst of it I was making the situation harder for them (not on purpose).
Here’s one situation::
Yesterday I got a flat tire on the expressway. This put a HUGE damper on my plans for the day but rather than focusing on the inconvenience I focused on praising God that I was not injured.
My mother had to leave work in order to take me to work. My sister in Christ had to reschedule plans in order to take me home. My husband had to be out in the heat of the day plugging my tire and then jumping my car because I caused the battery to die… The list goes on. And that’s just ONE day in my week. LoL. We won’t get into the rest of it because I don’t want to bore you… …
But my whole point of saying all of this is that GOD IS SO GOOD!
1. Not one person complained about helping me or grumbled about the extra hurdles; they joyfully served me.
2. I’m still alive, standing and strong.
3. I exercised my spiritual muscles.
4. My husband and I were able to hold hands & jump over the obstacles together.
5. God was glorified.
See, we all have challenging days, weeks, months, years and even centuries (if God allows it). What makes the difference is how much beauty we are willing to find in the midst those ugly days. It all starts with prayer.
**Today I urge you to find the beauty in the midst of your ugly situation & then focus on it**
