OPPORTUNITIES OR PROBLEMS?

Jesus said, “Be not afraid, only believe.” (Mark 5:36)

Robert H. Schuller said, “Impossibilities vanish when a man and his God confronts a mountain.”

Lord Kelvin said, “when you are face to face with a difficulty, you are up against a discovery.”

Remember, the eagle soars high against the storm and the airplane takes off against the wind. To rise above the situations and circumstances of life, we must learn to see and seize our opportunities by expanding our imagination through thinking big and giving our dreams a chance.

I must admit that it’s not fun meeting obstacles. It’s not easy passing through challenges. That’s why sometimes life becomes like a burden rather than adventure. But then life is all about challenges and the more we see them as adventure, the better for us. The only place where there are no questions, obstacles and inconveniences is the Cemetery. It should be the only place on earth where there are no difficulties or mountains to climb.

Life without problems is death. A world without puzzles to solve and situations to overcome is a graveyard. Never allow your challenges to be bigger than your dreams. Use them as stepping stones to move closer to your destiny.

It is pertinent, however, to point out that what some people call problems are only a fact of life. For example, our height is not something we can do anything about, we cannot change that, no matter how hard we try or the drugs we take. Every problem in life is solvable. If it can’t be solved, then it’s not a problem. If we can’t solve them, we can locate the right people to help us out. Above all, the God of heaven is there, if we call upon Him.

The earth has no problems that heaven cannot solve. The world has no questions that eternity cannot answer. If nobody ever lend you a helping hand, learn to encourage yourself by looking inside you and challenging the deposits inside you to rise up, while looking up unto Him who can do all things.
