"You are Bigger than Your Circumstances or Life Situation."

Writing is my passion. I have an undying thirst and quest in the field of writing. Some eat, drink or use drugs when stressed; I write.

Recently, I have talked to a surprisingly high number of people about the different challenges affecting their everyday life in some way. As I listened, I was seriously shocked at some of what I heard.

But as I continued to listen to what various individuals had to say about the disappointments, sadness, and heartache they were experiencing, I recognized many were seeking a 'Peaceful Resolution' to their problems.

Also, to look into the eyes of those I love, and in their eyes to see so much sadness, tells me there is an urgent need to find a useful and timely solution.

Yet, speaking from experience, if people even stand a chance at unity on this earth, this nation needed real revision from God. Many need their true identity restored, and they don't need any halfway done, and it can only be adequately done through Christ.

To begin with a solution, I feel compelled to reach out and respond by writing an article sharing that I can relate to the different situations and understand what it is that so many are going through.

Also, to God's children, I know it gets hard and you want the rain to stop, and the sun to shine. Hear me when I express that God wishes His children to be at peace and He will take the initiative to give it to them if they allow Him.

Moreover, know that your purpose in life is more significant than what you are struggling with, what I am indicating is, “Nothing and no one can ever break you, know that if no one encouraged you today, you are bigger than your circumstance or life situation."

“Always have faith in yourself. It is not easy to live life sometimes and face the world with a smile when you’re crying inside. It takes a lot of courage to reach down inside yourself. Hold on to that strength that’s still there and know that tomorrow is a new day with new possibilities. If you can just hold on long enough to see this through, you’ll come out a new person – stronger, with more understanding and with a new pride in yourself from knowing you made it.” ~ Kathy Obara

Furthermore, just in case you are one who is questioning what makes you more significant than your circumstance or life situation. Know that the answer lies with the vital purpose place in your life that is bigger than any of your struggles.

And you are a part of something far more significant than all your circumstances and that connection is being a member of a family with the living God.

Many of us struggle with highly stressful life events in our everyday life. In fact, some of us have trials coming at us back to back until we don’t have the time to fully breathe from one tragedy before the next hit us in the face. Take heed to this relevant quote, "If you fell down yesterday, stand up today."― H.G. Wells.

Often, we allow the challenges we struggle with to sidetrack us from what our essential purpose is. Because most of us are overcome with situations that we think are intended to harm us, we fail to realize the difficult times we are going through is meant to prepare us for our purpose.

Except if we want to fulfill our mission, we must not allow our struggles to blindside us from what God calls us to do. To achieve our purpose, we must rely on the strength that we have through Jesus and realize that he is with us.

Plus, the hurt from hard trials makes it easy to believe that God isn’t in the midst of our difficult situation and He left us alone without comfort.

"You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it."— Maya Angelou

Know that it might seem that way when there are so many tough challenges happening to you all at once. You are only in the midst of learning how to fulfill your essential purpose in life and let me be the one to share with you during the most challenging times I experienced.

It seems as if God is so distant, so far away, it is through the most challenging time that He is so in tune and a hands-on Father that will be there for His children.

There will be times when your problems seem to increase and make God look small but in those types of times, remember God is bigger than all our questions.

Moreover, God said there would be many trials and troubles in our life, but we could have peace with him because he will assist us in overcoming all these hard times. God can be there for us if we let him as his word said in Revelation 3:20 King James Version (KJV) Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

A lot of us are facing a tough time right now, what challenging situation are you facing in your life right now? Maybe, it’s a loss of a job, and you may be wondering how you will keep a roof over your head.

Perhaps, it’s a toxic relationship that is draining all the life out of you, and you are desperate to find peace and gain air to breathe. Or it could be that the one person you love so much with all your heart and soul has died, leaving you feeling lonely and wondering how you will continue living life without him.

Possibly, it’s a financial situation where you spend your last dime and are left wondering where the next dollar is going to come from. Regardless of your tough situation, I am here to share with you from my hard conditions; No hard times could overcome our God and remember, “You are bigger than your circumstance or life situation."

"Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use."— Earl Nightingale

Besides, there are things we can do when our circumstances seem more significant than our God. Let me share with you what I do when my problems look like tall mountains that are too high and hard to climb.

For most, I can climb the highest mountain and I know whatever battle I am facing; I stand victorious on the Word of God. Then I read these scriptures to assist me in my situation: Isaiah 41:13, Ephesians 6:11-17, 1 Peter 5:7, Philippians 4:13 and James 1:12.

The thing that helps me the most is to pray and stand on who my God is and know there's nothing too hard for Him what’s too hard for us is just right for Him; He can help and deliver me.

People in the Bible got discouraged and one of my favorite persons to read about is David, a man after God's own heart. 1 Samuel 30:6 shares how David was in distress when he considered his circumstances, it reads: Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters.

Although David strengthened himself in the Lord his God. Another great man of God who inspires me, that I love to read about in the Bible, is Jacob. It shares how He was distressed and afraid that He lost His Faith temporary.
Genesis 32:7 King James Version (KJV) “Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that were with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands”.

Except despite losing his Faith temporary, Jacob is a spiritual man who trusts in God and finishes strong. The Bible reads in Hebrews 11:21 King James Version (KJV) “By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff”.

“Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” ~ Joshua J. Marine

During our most challenging time when it seems, we can't continue on; God wants us to grab hold of Him and trust Him, never to let go. If you are not holding onto God, what do you have to hold onto, that’s why so many lose the war and be so easily defeated during the battle.

There will be times when we are placed in situations where we find ourselves being hit by one blow after another, and we feel crushed and exhausted.

However, we can find peace and confidence in God that will NEVER be found here on earth. Isaiah 41:10 King James Version (KJV) “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness”.

I shared all this information in this article to let whoever is reading this, “You are bigger than your circumstance or life situation” and you are joined together in the family of God with a father who cares.

Last word, bear in mind your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go, but they merely establish a starting position in your life. Yes, things have a way of interrupting our life and they can even cause a delay which is out of our control, but if we allow our God to prepare us in our everyday lives, we can make the most of any opportunity when they occur.

The most significant advantage about circumstances, they have a way of correcting you, guiding you and giving you the room to grow. Also, challenging situations will knock you down when you least expect it. But it's best to remember sometimes you have to go through your worst to arrive at your best.

Finally, never forget, winners are not people who have never failed, but individuals who never gave up... and successes who kept going, gaining victory.

        Well said. Yes, hurdles are a testing time. In a religious discourse, I had been to a long time back, the preacher disclosed that many people ask me why do those who believe in God suffer more than the ones who do not? To which he said that God wants to remove all the impurity within such persons so that when they meet Him their faces are radiant with purity.

        So it is the attitude that we take that keeps not only our faith in God firm but helps us face head on any situation we are in.

        The day changed my attitude to the difficulties and problems I faced in life and believe me faith in God has pulled me out of situations to which I had no solution in sight.

        Very inspiring post! Personally, I tend to lose my faith everytime that I'm experiencing difficulties in my life. It seems like I need to struggle all the time. But yeah, I survived because of one person, God! Most of the time during my struggles, I will simply whisper and say, help me God! Whatever your plan in my life, you will find ways to guide me on my right path. This simple sentence is really effective for me as I was able to find at peace inside me.
