I’m sure you’ve heard it said, “God never gives you more than you can handle.” This statement is designed to help people weather the tough times, but I think it needs to be revised. We aren’t supposed to white-knuckle our way through life. When we have a hard time, we’re supposed to open our hearts, eyes and ears and decipher what this hard time is teaching us.
We are given exactly what we need in order to complete our spiritual development. When life is painful, think of it as spiritual growing pains, or that hair is being put on your spiritual chest!
This means that each trial you face is actually a spiritual lesson is disguise. You can feel like a victim and become depressed and turn your back on spirit, or you can remind yourself that everything happens for a reason. When you approach challenges with this attitude, you will then naturally ask yourself what your current difficulty is teaching you, and how you can share this lesson with others to make the world a better place.
Tune-in for an eye opening episode that will help you turn the bitter and very hard to swallow lemons in your life into spiritual lemonade!
