How do you know you are not being prepared and positioned for promotion right now? How do you know that the difficulties you are experiencing aren’t merely tests designed to see if you’ve got what it takes to go to the next level in your life? How do you know that you weren’t positioned next to that person precisely to develop in you the qualities that you will require down the road? How do you know that all the suffering and struggle won’t reward you with newer and bigger opportunities than you ever thought possible? How do you know that your failures aren’t the very teachers you needed to train you how to succeed over and over again? Maybe you feel like nobody cares and you don’t matter. But how do you know someone somewhere isn’t watching, taking note, and preparing to bless you in ways you can’t even imagine?
The answer is that you don’t. You can’t know whether life is only what you see in front of you right now, or something far more. But you can choose what you believe. And when you choose to believe in something more, it’s amazing how often life proves you right!
