Often we think there’s no way out of our problem(s) or that they can never get better. I hate to tell you this. Sometimes it’s true. Some things can’t turn around or go back. It goes against the Laws of Physics. There are those times, though, when things change. It may even surprise us. There is a turnaround, something different, something unexpected. Learn to believe in the impossible happening. I have learned NEVER to say NEVER. The great physicists tell us that ‘in an eternal universe, anything can happen.’ As a matter of fact, NOT ONLY can they happen, but they do! I believe part of our purpose here, though, is to accept our situation without expectations. Meaning, we have to learn to carry our crosses and hope for the best. We don’t get everything we want. God is in control. We can make choices, but ultimately, it’s not always our decision that determines the result. These are times when we must trust in The Lord and know that hardship makes us humble. It makes us human and who we are. At the same time, we can learn, that he will make a way no matter what. Even if it’s not ‘the way’ we expected. There will always be a way out—with God.
