Sometimes trouble comes from every direction in our lives and it feels like we just can’t escape it. It’s as if every road you turn down is a dead end and you just can’t win.
You may go through great lengths to try a new treatment plan, but it fails to work. Or maybe you drive all the way to your doctor appointment and they cancel it without calling you. Whatever the frustration may be, it’s important to remain calm. When things don’t go the way you’d like, stop trying to fight against it and just let things happen. Let go and trust God.
Everything has a purpose in our lives and there’s often a good explanation hidden within the frustrations we face. Maybe the new treatment plan failed because you might have gotten a terrible reaction from it. Or maybe the appointment that was cancelled was because that doctor wasn’t going to be good for you. God is in the midst of every minute of our lives and most of the time when things don’t go as we had planned it’s because He was protecting us from something dangerous or harmful; something not meant for us.
Instead of being frustrated when things go wrong, we should be thankful that we were being redirected to something better. It’s those sticky situations that have gotten us where we are today; which is better than it could have been if it weren’t for those dead ends.
