When you look at the big picture you might ask yourself why can't I just be on the steady sail and straight road to what I want in life? Why do I always get put on the bumpy road with obstacles every now and then? During those times it can be hard because you might see others that seem to be going down a smooth sail, but in all reality, they have endured their hardships or will in the future. Our timing is all different, and specifically inspired and designed for us as individuals. In all reality it's simple. The Lord has created and shaped us personally for our own specific routes. They might not be ideal for you, might seem like a hell of a time — literally.
But at the end of it all, this truly sets you up for success for what things you want to achieve and things of the unknown. We truly have all of the ideas on what we want to happen, and how it'll happen ideally. But in all reality, we have to put the trust in the Lord that he will carry us to those destinations correctly. We might not realize how much knowledge, the strength we need for those circumstances until we gain them through the trials we endure. Which can be seen as allowing God has given the grace to work through you not against you.
So friends, keep your head up high, trust in the Lord and enjoy the ride because your final destination will be beautiful, and you'll never regret all of the growth you have gained from the road you have traveled.
