Embracing the True Source

If suffering is inevitable and our problems unavoidable how then do we stop suffering. I do believe everything happens for a reason. Life is not a game, it has a lot to offer and one can’t predict the future. When something bad happens, it mustn’t bring you down. Positivity needs to be instilled. Some bad things happening doesn’t necessarily mean you are bad as a whole but sometimes life takes us places we never expected to be and in these places God writes a story we never thought would be ours.

None of us chooses to suffer, but at times suffering is a blessing in disguise. You may wonder what kind of blessings comes from suffering, trust me experience is the best teacher. People suffer physically, emotionally, mentally, financially as well as spiritually. The best way is to turn to God. Sometimes God breaks your heart to serve your soul. Money makes people happy but the Greatest of all is God. We despair from God not knowing He is the Provider. Suffering makes people strong in all aspects of life especially spiritually, faith is raised, and we turn to the correct and best source. People become humble and have better objectives during the times of trials and tribulations. Though we face different challenges it doesn’t mean we should accept them, however Nipsy Hustle once said “I don’t give any person that much power over my path, not one person can make or break what I do except me or God” hence God first the rest will follow. Knowing your strength zone and staying within it is always a great step to take. Everyone is Born of God. He even knew us before we were born. As we live during hard times, God remains Absolute, though we have failed him a countless time.

Wondering made me realise that everyone is special in their own way. As we face a lot and look back we do not have answers on how we overcame, God works in mysterious ways and there is always a story to tell and a lesson to embrace. Problem shared is problem solved. Learn to appreciate what you have before time makes you appreciate what you had. It’s never too late to turn to God. We suffer because of ego. Never let your problems demotivate you. Matakadya kare haanyaradzi mwana. Never let your troubles blind you to your blessings, but they should lead you.

To a greater extent suffering is inevitable, a narrow road will always lead one to a better life, God is the way, truth and life.
