OBSTACLES GET YOU PREPARED

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." (2 Corinthians 12:9)
How many of us can recall the last time we had a setback? I have had them severally. Though unpleasant but with them come life's vital lessons.




I have not had shortage of hard times or obstacles. There were times these obstacles came in succession like I had the worst case on earth 😊 and they still come.

But in all these, God has been faithful. He allowed these obstacles to come my way to get me prepared ahead making me a better and stronger woman. 

Through these obstacles, God showed I Am a work in progress in His hands  making His strength more than enough for me so I can trust and have faith in Him even more.

God never promised us smooth sailing, but promises to be with us through the storms of life. 

We have all had one form of setback or the other either in our past or presently faced with one or more.

Setbacks can be so unpleasant and discomforting. No one wants to or desires to have a taste of it especially after much preparations and anticipation for success yet comes the setbacks.

The truth is, we all have to deal with one form of setback or the other in life because they are necessary for our growth. 

No one can run or escape from it no matter how unpleasant or discomforting they can be.

Without these, life would be so easy without experiences, inspirations, motivations,  lessons learnt and beautiful stories told.

Without obstacles, it will also be difficult to adapt in unusual environments or situations.

There are people who do all they can to avoid them, some live in denial of the existence of obstacles while others remain defeated.

But if we face every obstacle that comes our way optimistically and with faith, we would find how useful they are when we eventually reach our goals.

BELOW ARE THE BENEFITS OF OBSTACLES

Obstacles make you strong, disciplined, give you beautiful experiences and then make you adapt in any situation you find yourself in.

They get you prepared for the next phase of life keeping you balanced on your feet for anything that might come your way.

Obstacles get you prepared against future eventualities. The more obstacles you face with optimism, the more likely you are to be more mature and adaptable to unfriendly situations or circumstances. They help to make you stronger and more resilient in life.  

Obstacles also help to get you set for a purpose. I got into writing due to certain obstacles I experienced in life, moved to blogging and then gradually into speaking.

Setbacks and obstacles in most cases help you to see your purpose in life and here on planet earth.

You also get new perspectives in life whenever you encounter an obstacle. It gives you much clarity on how to go about things. 

You might have a particular way of doing things and then comes some setbacks interrupting how you do things.

If you don't get overwhelmed by the setbacks, you will see a new way of living your purpose here on earth.  "And we know that all things work together for good to them who love God and to them who are called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28).

One thing that is constant in life is change and certain changes occur when we face obstacles in life.

A perfect example of such is the outbreak of the coronavirus that affected the world's economy and so many lives. This gave a new perspective on how things and businesses should run.

Life doesn't always go the way we want and it will always throw obstacles at us. The best way to deal with them is to see them as stepping stones and new opportunities to improve ourselves better.
