We sometimes look back in wonder how we got through, the situation that prevents us from seeing the light we now stand in, that even shades the great dreams and hope of accomplishing our hearts desire. “I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favour to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all” (Eccl 9: 11). Whatever we conceive our goals to be how it got started, we aspire and we make use of our opportunities. Many young people aspire to play in the premier league or play for England at Wembley stadium. Many to finish college have a profession in a particular field; walk shoulder to shoulder with big names in the business environment, or a niche job in the city. Many will want to aim towards a career in politics, the noble teaching profession or even starting their own business. Whatever it is we aim for, the path is never easy, and fraught with many disappointment and dangers along the way.

 This can make or break us and our success or failure really depends on how we handle those tough situations. Many give up on their dreams as soon as a they are faced with difficult decisions. “No matter what you’re going through, He’ll fix it up for you” is one that can help us, reaffirm our commitments, and to trust God to see us through. “The darkest hour of the night is just before dawn” aims to lift our spirit when things get difficult in our lives. Alternatively “there’s a light at the end of the tunnel” a cliché that encourages hope and perseverance. It may seem very hard even to think let alone to hope to get through it but we can do it and if we just keep on working towards it and we’ll find that the positive side of things will materialise.
