Problems: The Challenges of Life

Never waste a moment
In this quickly flowing life
Never use your precious time
To decry and moan your strife.

Take every problem that comes your way
And thank God for it to solve
For it keeps you alive and thinking
Of the journey of surprises yet to evolve.

Problems are stepping-stones to learning
Measured stress to make you ponder and think
Puzzles of life to study and solve
Keeping you looking for the missing link.

Sometimes the problems we have to face
Are nothing more than blessings in disguise
If we work to figure out the hidden clues
They might clear up other problems that arise.

God doesn’t always send us
Exactly what we ask or tell him to send
He surprises us with blessings in disguise
Like a loving father who is your friend.

Jeanette, I enjoyed reading "Problems: The Challenges of Life" we should welcome a challenge because how else can we learn important life lessons. "...Problems are stepping-stones to learning..." I truly believe in the quoted statement of yours.

Often times the challenge is a difficult one however if we just remember it all has a reason and ties into an important issue in our lives. Thank you for sharing your beautiful words of love.

Blessings,
Gwendolyn

Jeanette,
This lesson is learned over time, surely. He keeps us guessing, but He always answers.

Jeanette, this is an inspirational reminder that God builds us for undertakings in our lives through mechanisms of testing our strength and endurance as we struggle through trials & tribulations. I, like you, believe problems are stepping-stones to measuring our abilities and how we can cope in certain situations, and if we are weak, they will make us stronger. A wonderful writing.
