Trials can be a Stepping Stone or a Stumbling Block

22 01 2011

We all face challenges in life in every area of our lives, many of us walk the path of least resistance thinking that will make life easier and simpler for us not realizing that the path of least resistance does not bring about change and growth to create a challenge to Do and Become better.

Walking and pressing through life’s challenges takes courage and faith and determination to see it through to a better tomorrow and the light that always comes at the other end if we hold on in the night.

What we focus on when times are tough does make a difference to how you get through but more importantly it changes you as you go through and creates in you a stronger more courageous person who will face the next challenge with fortitude and more strength within than before.

Each challenge is an opportunity to work on yourself, face your fears, and create a better tomorrow with the knowledge and skills you learn through the trial and challenge.

So embrace your trials and challenges as a gift and you will find blessings and lessons within each one that will help you Be and Become a better person with strength and faith and hope for a better tomorrow and an inner change that will come forth to all around you.

I am learning and growing through my challenges and Trials and part of that process is being thankful in the midst of them, taking the opportunities you see in them, and working on the areas you are shown to create a better you.

Blessings to each one who is struggling in some area today, may you find the inner strength to press through and embrace all you can in the moment to become better for the journey.

Trails can be a Stepping Stone or a Stumbling Block.
I, Robert Townsend Stewart, agree completely with this reasoning. Trials no matter what we think about them are always good for us. Weather we know what the benefit of the trail is, does not mean that the trail is not a Stepping Stone. Maybe pure optimism, that everything works out for the purpose for which we have been called.

Life’s challenges offers rewards and setbacks. Examining each challenge or individual trail has by nature, the benefit or hindrance for “Our” overall goal(s). Maybe pure optimism, that everything works out fot the purpose for which we have been called.

The question becomes not weather our trail is a stepping stone or a stumbling block but, “What is our life about?” Our trails do make us who we are, or who we are going to be. So thinking a little deeper about the question, I feel that everything works out in the end. The end being the end of our life and the trails made us who we were, or even who we are now. I like to consider the parable in the bible, “Every star differs in glory.”
