Sometimes we want to get rid of adversity, when the best thing would be to know how to overcome it.
“Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one.”
- Bruce Lee
DO NOT PRAY FOR AN EASY LIFE, PRAY FOR THE STRENGTH TO ENDURE A DIFFICULT ONE
We all have dreams and desires, but sometimes our wishes don't align with what's best for us. I'm not talking about health or wealth or education. Those are all important things that we should always seek to improve upon if possible. No, the kinds of wishes that can get us into trouble are ones like: "I wish my partner were more attentive," or "I wish my boss listened better," or "I wished I could go back in time and not make that stupid decision." These are all things that can be improved upon with effort—but sometimes we don't want to exert effort in order to change them because it would mean having an easier life. But an easy life isn't necessarily better than a difficult one; rather, being able to endure difficult circumstances brings us more satisfaction than living an easy existence ever could!
SOMETIMES WE WISH FOR THE THINGS THAT ARE NOT THE BEST FOR US.
Often, we wish for the things that are not the best for us. We say, "I want a successful career," or "I want to have three kids." Then, our lives turn out differently than what we planned and we wonder why. We need to focus on what we need instead of what we want, because often times our wants will get in the way of what is actually best for us.
There are many ways that God can give you strength in your life—prayer being one of them! God will never leave you desolate; He is always by your side and ready to help when you call upon Him (Psalm 23:4).
AN EASY LIFE IS NOT NECESSARILY A HAPPY LIFE.
An easy life is not necessarily a happy life. Sometimes it is better to have the difficult obstacles in your life because you learn from them and become stronger as you overcome them.
BEING ABLE TO ENDURE A DIFFICULT LIFE IS MORE GRATIFYING THAN LIVING AN EASY LIFE.
It is only when we face difficulties that we can see the true value of life. If everything was always easy, then life would be boring and unfulfilling. Living through a difficult time shows you who you are and what kind of person you want to be. It builds your character and makes you stronger as a person.
In order for a person to become strong and resilient, they first need faith in themselves. They must believe that they have what it takes to overcome any obstacle thrown their way because they have already done so before in their lives; no matter how big or small those obstacles may seem at first sight! Once this self-confidence has been established within someone’s mindset then they will feel more empowered than ever before because they know that anything worthwhile comes at some cost - but if one must choose between comfort over growth then there really isn't much point living anyway right?
It is important to remember that life is not always going to be easy. There will be challenges and obstacles that you must overcome in order for your dreams to come true.
