Experiencing Adversity In Your Life?

When was the last time you experienced adversity in your life?  There are many people who are experiencing adversity nowadays, and they are looking for answers and solutions that will change the outcome of their current situation.  Are you one of those people?

I like to look at adversity as being a situation or circumstance that opposes

one’s interests or desires.  Some people see adversity as an unfortunate event or circumstances, a condition marked by misfortune, or even a catastrophe.

Did you realize that an antonym for the word adversity, is PROSPERITY?  Prosperity is good fortune or can even be described as a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition.

If prosperity is considered to be an opposite condition of adversity, then when we are aligning ourselves with God’s will for us, or even looking at our role in His Divine Plan that He has designed, AND when we are in alignment with His desires for us, then it makes sense that we could flourish and thrive in a successful manner.

Yet if we are NOT aligning our will with God’s will and we are opposing what He has desired for us, then we attract adverse situations into our lives.

God wants to pour His freely given, unmerited favor, love, grace, and blessings upon us, to enhance and beautify our lives.

If you are experiencing something in your life right now, that you feel opposes your interests or desires, OR worse yet, you just feel like you’re in the middle of a catastrophic moment, then do yourself a favor and follow these guidelines:

-Spend some quiet with God (or your Higher Power).

-Ask for clarity and direction, so that you can carry out God’s purpose for you today.

-Focus on what you have a passion for, and think about the possibilities of what you can do with that thing you are passionate about – what you can do to serve God and serve others around you in this world.

When we get out of our “self” and do things for others, it is often one of the best solutions that we can use, to change our adverse feelings and emotions.  Serving others brings us out of the “dumps” and allows us to experience sensations of joy.

May you experience much joy and many blessings today!
