Have you ever been rejected by your friends or got problems with your closest friends or been so worried because of what you are going through or you’ve got something but you’ve got no one to share with. Lately, I have been going through some hard times in my life and I have also seen some of my great friends going through hard times in their life and I have worried why this happens.
However, I have come to realize and experience that life is not a straight line just like the saying goes. We live in a life with people who aren’t perfect (BTW, including myself :-)) and most of them who are selfish and the rule almost governing all is survival for the fitness just like in the jungle.
During my meditations, God reminded me of Nick Vujicic who visited Uganda sometime back and challenged me and some many other people of how God has been using him without limbs. I did a search about Nick to get the video I watched of how he manages to do everything anyone else can do with help from anyone and you can watch it right below.

So if someone without limbs is enjoying his life, why should someone like I keep complaining. Most times, we think of life without problems BUT God never promised such a life. He rather promised that HE WILL ALWAYS BE WITH US. So before you complain to God about whatever situation you are going through, try to think of how you can use what you’ve to God’s Glory rather than thinking God should give you something for you to be beneficial and remember that you will never have a testimony without first being through a hard situation.
Remember in James 1:2-4 (NIV) says:
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Keeping Nick’s great story in my mind, Don’t you think that God’s Grace is more than sufficient.
