Digging Deeper

Life will throw you curveballs and it is a fact that is inevitable.  The size of those curveballs can be enormous and monumental or trivial and insignificant. Life does not forewarn how fast, how big or small, or when the curveball is coming until it has already unexpectedly flown past.

What do you do when those curveballs create a negative impact on your life? How do you handle those uncomfortable situations that force you to be stretched, whether you are willing or not willing to participate in the  process?

So often we repeatedly attempt to resist change that has occurred, whether by not accepting the circumstance, or trying to run around the situation through avoidance. Either way, you are enabling the curveball to have power over your life and continue to strike you out.

Understand that damaging curveballs do not have to be liked or well appreciated, however they can be moments in life utilized to test your character and reveal areas of weakness that need to be strengthened for the future. A curveball may leave you so disoriented that you continue to strike out many times after, but know that multiple strike outs does not cause you to lose at the game of life because at the end of each strike you are still left standing.

So what do you do?

Dig a little deeper. Dig a little deeper from deep within yourself, step up to the plate of life and get ready to swing.

Allow the curveballs of life to create new opportunities of growth that will unlock new areas of strength to help you to continue shining through life beautifully.

    I believe God gives us curve balls he knows we need. To us they are devastating and may even cause us to question God’s existence and even His love for us – but God has a big and better plan. These verses have helped me, maybe they will help another
    *1 Cor. 10:13 No temptation[c] has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted[d] beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted,[e] he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

    *James1:2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
