In life, you will always have challenges and obstacles that you must overcome. As the old saying goes, “nothing in life comes easy.” With this realization, you must not allow the difficulties of life to stop you from pursuing your hopes and dreams. If anything, you must remember to appreciate the betrayals, heartbreaks, disappointments, negative words, failures, moments of missed opportunities and even the countless amounts of No’s that you’ve heard spoken to you throughout your lifetime. These experiences only paved the way for you to obtain the promise that was placed on your life before you were placed in your mother’s womb and before the very foundation of the world.
Just like a woman has to endure nine months of carrying her child and then endure for many harsh labor pains, the end results is no comparison to the pain she had to experience to holding her precious son or daughter.
With that being said, always remember that for every hurt and pain you have endured in life it was part of the process you had to go through in order to get the promise that God had on your life. As the word of God in Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) states,” For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Now that you know that your pain was not in vain go out in life and conquer your dreams!
