What it do
Yo, there is a gospel song by Donald Lawrence and tri-city singers titled “The best.” The line that they sing is key to life, “weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning.”
Man, Everytime I hear that line I wondered how many people are out of their season of weeping and in their season of joy and are still weeping. My dad says it best, “YOU KEEP HOLDING ON TO YOUR PAST, YOU WON’T HAVE A FUTURE.” Why we do this?
1) Well most of the time we don’t have a strategy to overcome adversity.
You gotta deal with adversity. Yes, problems, situations arise that are out of your control. These situations come in ways that one could never image. But it’s not the adversity that’s the problem. How you handle adversity is the problem. Look, there is no way around it or under it. You must go through it. Courage is the key. When trouble comes your way you have to stand tall, be firm don’t waver or move. Stare into the eye of that Strom and let the storm know that it swang and gave its best shot, but its best was not good enough. Now it’s your turn.
For example, a palm tree can not be broken or torn to piece. Yes in storms it bends and sways back and forth. But, it can never be moved it is firm and sturdy, never up rooted.
Think about it.
2) Maybe we don’t understand that we are to let go and learn from the situation not hang on.
Letting go of situations and things that have deeply hurt you is hard to do. Man, sometimes it feels like you need a intervention. I challenge and encourage you to step back and anaylze that these hurts that you are holding on to is doing more harm then any good. You are not getting the lesson out of your pain because you are constantly focusing on the negative. DO NOT keep remembering the hurt because you will be only keeping it around as a means to get even and stay relevant. Yes I said, staying relevant. Alot of hurt people keep holding on to hurt because they feel that a piece of them was lost in that particular time. Don’t do this, it is pointless. Instead seek out the lesson, get it, understand it and move on. Don’t look back. Just get the lesson and go.
3) Maybe we don’t have the confidence that we will emerge victorous.
Tell youself that I will and I am going to come out of this victorous. Sometimes in situations that look like there is no help, no mercy, no end. You have to become your own cheerleader. You have to will yourself to the finish line even if you don’t see one. Doing this is not a matter of do feel like youycan emerge victorous. IT IS A MATTER OF DO YOU WANT TO EMERGE. You know desperate times calls for desperate measures. So why not become desperate in your moments of trials and tribulations to see yourself win.
4) Maybe the situation is so overwhelming and tramuatizing to us that we can’t seem to shake it.
What I am realizing with my own troubles is that the mind only precieves overwhelming and tramuatization when it loses control over situations and things. In any situation it is common for humans to try to fight fire with fire. You may try to regain auhority by Waring with your situations, but I advise you don’t even try. Your wasting your time. Just let go and let Yahuah (God). Simply put he has the purpose for your life. He has a plan for your life. He knows your end from your beginning. He knows the trials and test that’s going to come your way in life. Lastly, he knows what it’s going to take for you to perservere in life. So who better hands to be in then the heavenly father.
Remember trouble don’t last always
Hunger for knowledge, thirst for understanding
