Struggling is a part of everyday life, no matter if you're rich, poor, black, white, or in between. Some people struggle with saying no, while others may struggle to stay consistent. Whatever the case may be, there's always a lesson to be learned given the circumstances.
When we are faced with challenges, many of us tend to let the discomfort of what we're dealing with (at the moment) get in the way of us seeing the bigger picture. We forget that though we may feel like this now, things are not always going to be as bleak further down the line. When we can't comprehend the things of God, we think its unnecessary to have to go through the things that we go through. We can't understand why on earth would God allow all of these things to happen to us. Why would He allow us to get hurt the way we did? Or why He allows us to lack certain things for an extensive amount of time? Though these are valid questions, we may never fully understand until we make it out of our situations. Sometimes things just aren't made clear to us until years later, and what we experience may not even be for us, but for someone else to have that example before them. To know that whatever it's is they are facing, they can overcome it with the help and direction of The Moat High, no matter how big or small the situation is.
I was always taught that through anguish comes the birthing of greatness. So in other words all of the pressing, shaking and fiery trials come to build us up, especially in the areas that we lack, which is all apart of Gods plan. When you look back on life and can distinctively see where you were then, and where you are now , especially when you've been through it all, that's when you know the struggle was worth it. No it doesn't seem fair or easy when we're living in the moment, but to able to make it out alive with an awesome testimony about how God did it for you, is immeasurable.
