Setbacks in Life

morning walk
Sometimes, life throws you a curveball and you find yourself emotionally burnout, emptied and overwhelmed by life. When you give it your best shot but you still come up short. You even believe that God is leading you but it just doesn't happen. You've had a setback.
There are different kinds of setbacks in life; financial, health, family, relational or career setback. 
You may be dealing a setback right now. No matter which you are in, you feel that forces are against youThis drags the overall and makes life less enjoyable.

Part of a greater plan. 

Those nights that you spent crying over unfulfilled dreams. Was experiencing rejections, from one failure to another. As if you are not doing anything good at all. You sometimes ask, "Did I hear God wrong?" Recognize that, it's always right before you get to the next level of your life. New level, new devil. Satan wants to attack those who are next in line for a promotion. It all depends on how you view it. So stay a little more focus.

God's pruning in your life.

This is such a game changer. Truly, only God knows what's best. He knows that this is essential for us to grow. He cut's of not just the dead areas in your life but also those that are successful and are bearing fruit. Your faith will be tested but never forget what God has told you in the light during your dark times. I know, sometimes it really doesn't make sense but isn't it wonderful to develop that kind of attitude, "Because you say so, Lord. I'll wait..I'll do it...I'll trust you...I'll continue to grow..."

It surely will take place, it will not be delayed. (Habakkuk 2:3)

The sweetness of God's promise. It's so good to take a hold on this, right? No matter how long will it take for that dream. It's worth the wait. God can turn 10 years of delay to 10mins with just a single snap. God can turn it quickly. Never give up the dream what God has put into your heart. The very long wait won't matter. Don't trade your deadline for God's deadline. 

Give God the first part of your life.

You gonna get God in your life, your 'whole' life (with emphasis). I don't know about you but I'm more interested in the Blesser than the blessing. This is going to be a faith walk. 
What is God calling you to do? I'm not saying that we should drop our career and work at the church. Sometimes, we are a missionary in disguise.  May it be a missionary disguised as a writer, a missionary disguised as a teacher or whatever the job God has put you to do. Either way, we are working for the Lord.

If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer's day. - Anthon St. Maarten

Understand that setback is part of life for all of us. We all have humps and bumps along the way. It's part of the process. Also, maybe you need a change of perspective, a new skillset. The fact that you are affected means you are growing and God is telling you something. It's all good.
Accept, plain simple yet, in reality, is painful. It's important to have the right mindset, it's never easy but always strive to improve. Keep finding things you love. It's being happy that leads to great work and success. This may stretch your comfort zone but it's a good stretch because that's going to bring you to something else.

Remember: If you are feeling like it's time to give up and you can't take it anymore, that's an indication you're up to your breakthrough.
