One of Life's Greatest Tests

Updated on October 30, 2013


If only life could be a bed of roses, we would be living in heaven on Earth.

However, life has highs and very lows. Those lows are the storms of Life. They could be:

ღ A very difficult time.

ღ A time when nothing makes sense.

ღ A time when you think God has forgotten you or gone on holiday.

ღ You don’t see the Sun nor do you see a light at the end of the tunnel. Infact, you can't even see the Tunnel!!

Then someone asks you for help. What help?!! No No, not Now, maybe later when you have got through the storm.

But did you know that sometimes when you give to people or help others during your difficult times, you pave the way for a miracle to find. While you are busy helping them, heaven is busy coming to your rescue.



Inspite of problems, there are people who still find time to help others. Maybe visiting them in hospital and offering words of encouragement. It’s tough, but as much as we can, I encourage people to do so. I am not going to ‘big myself up’ in this post, but I do know with all my heart, that you can never lose for giving.

Even Job, the minute he was kind (prayed) for those who mocked him, his situation turned around and God gave him twice as much as he had before. (Job 42.10). Again, it's easier said that done. May Life treat us kind.

Quote: Your greatest test is when you are able to Bless someone else, while going through your own storm.

      A great reminder Lady_E. It's very easy when we are going through tough times to become very insular and a bit self-obsessed. Not only is helping other people good for them, but I believe that it is also a great way of helping yourself through the bad times
