How many times do you find yourself running away from a situation that you don’t like, or that is uncomfortable for you? I myself do this very often. Once the pressure starts to weigh me down, I try to get out of the situation as fast as possible. Have you stopped to think that in doing this you may be missing out?
Just like a rose bush remains beautiful and gets the chance to grow properly, through times of pruning, we also need the same type of circumstances in our life. If the rose bush was left untrimmed it would grow out of control losing its brilliance and grandeur all because it wanted out of the painful pruning season.
When God gives us times of growth in our life we need to step back and examine the situation. We need to be open to the reasons of why we are there and what we can learn from them. Resilience, strength and faith are birthed out of the darkest of valleys. When we run from these times, we miss out on the chance to grow and mature into the person that Jesus wants us to be.
When the storms of life hit, don’t run away. Rest easy in His presence and teach your children to do likewise. God’s word promises us that He will always be there for us. “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 Model to them a behavior of surrendering it all to Jesus and waiting on His timing. In doing so, your children will have such an advantage and be far ahead of their years when they learn to lean on Jesus Christ.
Once a difficult season of life is over, I often count them as gifts because of the person I have become because of them. The Bible comands us to trust in Him and to teach our children to trust in Him. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths
