First, we are not in control. We have to get over the fact we aren’t the CONDUCTOR. As much as we think we’re in control of our lives, we aren’t. God is the ultimate CONDUCTOR in our lives. Whether we may believe or not, there are things of higher power at work in our lives. Why do things happen, whether it’s good or bad? Does it seem like certain things have happened at the right time; jobs have lined up at the perfect moments? Things out of our control happen all the time. And for you naysayers, it’s not by shear chance something happens. But rather, through the grace of God. Well, what if I don’t believe? What if His word doesn’t have any meaning in my life? The Bible has the answers for you! Now, it’s up to you to figure out why things have happened in your life. Unbelievable and shocking moments will help you through this journey. Why or how did these doors open for me? Second, whether these circumstances were life-changing or not, use these experiences to SHARE with others. We all have very personal secrets, weaknesses, pains, and problems very few, or no one knows about. I know it can be hard, but try to open up and admit to character flaws. By opening yourself up, you can minister to others’ pains and problems. We can correlate and empathize with people going through similar circumstances. God uses our pains and hurts to help and minister to others. At least that’s His plan. Whether or not we choose to SHARE, that’s our decision. It’s easier to sulk and feel sorry for ourselves, rather than acknowledging our individual problems. Just remember, whatever you may be experiencing, it hasn’t been the first time. It’s not new. Someone has similarly gone through the same thing. Once you begin to open yourself up, you can give HOPE to others suffering similar hardships. Be willing not to be the CONDUCTOR and SHARE your weaknesses.
