We've all been there. Some more than others, but I'm here to tell you, even when life throws you more challenges than you think you can take, it's okay. In fact, they're usually what make you stronger in the end.
Take for instance a story I once heard about an experiment.
A group of scientists wanted to create a biodome filled with everything it needed to be self-sustaining. The enclosure would be a utopia of sorts, holding all it could possibly use to achieve perfection. The perfect soil, plants, trees, temperature...it was balanced evenly...so nothing could go wrong.
You know the one thing they forgot to add, however? Resistance. In their efforts to create perfection, they failed to remember you need resistance, to make things stronger. In this case, it was the wind.
You see, in nature, plants and trees are made to bend. It's an important factor so when the wind pushes against them, they move and force that resistance against their roots. What results from this? Stronger roots.
What the scientists realized, was that without the strength of the roots, the plants and trees fell over, broke or died out altogether.
I've learned over the years, even when you wish everything could be perfect or without difficulties, it doesn't necessarily mean that's what's best for you. Sometimes the obstacles that get in your way, the resistance, are what make you better in the end.
Those are the times you look back on and realize just how important they were, even though you couldn't see it while they happened.
So when the wind pushes you, even on the rainiest of days, remember to allow yourself to bend and not break. Trust that God is quite possibly using it, to make you stronger than you've ever been before.
