file0001744502535 (1)Wouldn’t it be great if all of the problems in our lives were already solved and we had no worries or sorrows???  Just smooth sailing along.  Well we all know that’s an impossibility.  What most of us don’t realize is that in every problem, mistake, failure or sorrow lies an opportunity to be had or a lesson to be learned.  Nothing is a coincidence, we live in a universe that is constantly sending us messages and signals usually in the form of problems.  Our difficulties are signposts that are waiting to be read.  Whatever problem or dilemma you are experiencing and working through in your life, has been put there for a reason, so instead of getting upset, just stop take a deep breath and ask yourself…What is this problem telling me about myself?  What is it telling me about my Thoughts?  Beliefs? Actions? Choices?  Lifestyle?  What is this problem trying to tell me?  Take a close look and see if you can find the real cause.  If you get angry or start blaming others or have a pity party, then you will probably miss the important messages that these problems bring to you.  By stopping and asking these questions you will get into the habit of turning everyday situations into opportunities.  Problems and difficulties can be used as a springboard to deeper insight.  You will learn how to make every problem and difficulty serve you and therefore understand that there are no such things as problems…Only opportunities.  So what do you think?  Give it a shot…There’s nothing to lose and it’s free and if it’s free, then it’s for me.   🙂

    oh… the stepping stones bringing us closer and closer to who we are. I found that the more I resist the lessons, the more difficult it is. I like the question “What is it telling me about…” It gives us a very different perspective and we don’t get into the victim behavior by thinking “Why…”

    “What is this problem telling me about myself? ” I really love that question. That’s a gold nugget for a sit…….

    I love the deep insight, as always, Stephen! Thanks for making us think. Problems and pain are in our lives for a reason. May God give us the grace to ask why and take bold action!
