We all have the opportunity to either rise above or sink below the adversities of life.
I know this because I’ve had my own share of life experiences; some of which I’ve risen above and others that completely drowned me.
I vividly recall a time, when my family and I lived in a shelter for months. Upon leaving, we moved into a modest space where privacy was non-existent so there was no room for selfishness. We had to make do with the little we had. At times we didn’t have anything, not even food.
To many, these living conditions would be considered unfortunate. But for me, this type of adversity birthed a resilience in me that couldn’t be destroyed by lack, limitations or uncertainty. These adverse conditions grew my faith to new dimensions. I was not intimidated by obstacles; in fact, I used the tools I gained through adversity to close deals and build successful businesses. I also used these tools to love my family unconditionally, to support my friends and to give to those in need.
Was it embarrassing at times? Yes.
Was it painful at times? Of course.
But this view of life sparked the desire in my heart to rise above my circumstances; gave me the mental stamina to go after greater for me, my future family and the community I would one day serve. You see, adversity yields many gifts.
Adversity is unavoidable. Going through adversity is never easy, that’s why you can’t just go through, you have to make a conscious decision to GROW through. There is a popular saying that goes, “What doesn’t kill you, makes stronger.” Adversity is the WHAT and I promise you that if you grow through your adversity you will be strengthened to take on every challenge that comes your way! Adversity comes to grow us, deepen our faith and to give us the courage to know that we don’t have to be intimidated by trials but we can use the lessons to catapult us to the next level of every area of our lives.
I want to encourage you to find your gift in adversity because it is in your toughest times that you discover how courageous, passionate, loving and resilient you really are. I want to remind you that you are powerful and you too can turn your adversity into your gift.
