Sometimes life throws us one curve ball after another. In fact, isn’t it just a given? Is life not full of one challenge after another? Have you ever thought to yourself, “ya, but I think I’ll just sit this one out.” Granted, too much swinging can be tiresome, but curve balls are good because life’s challenges are nothing more than opportunities for change and growth. However, I will be the first to admit it can be difficult to hang onto this perspective in the midst of (what might seem to be) a losing game.
A Blessing in Disguise!
I believe that each challenge Satan throws our way is a blessing just waiting to happen. Not that God needs a reason to bless us, but what a wonderful opportunity for Him to demonstrate His love and character to the world. So the next time trouble rolls your way, I challenge you to look for the good which may come from it. And the next time life throws you a curve ball, don’t sit in the side lines for fear of striking out. Instead, step up to the plate expecting to hit a home run!
