Worse to Impossible

  Have you ever been in a situation where you think that it just cannot get worse and it does? Have you ever been swept along in a series of events which are not rational or reasonable? Have you ever had problems for which there seem to be no solutions? Your painful trial is like a heavy load which bears you down with agonizing sadness.What do you experience during those impossible difficult times? Don’t you feel absolutely and totally frustrated, helpless, and vulnerable as you are powerless to make the situation better? Not believing, distressed, you look on like a zombie!

 Well, what have I done when faced with such a situation?
First reaction - Question God, ‘Why?’
Second reaction –Self-pity
Third reaction – Give in to a bout of tears.

I feel like I have hit the bottom and cannot go down further!

I do wish fervently that I could adopt Garfield’s theory - ‘When life puts you in tough situations, don’t say why me? Just say try me!’ Great! But then, I’m not a cat! I’m just a mere human and a woman! 

However, over the years I have slowly but surely cultivated a method which has helped me tremendously. So, here’s what I do now! 

It goes as follows:

I close my eyes tightly, breathe in and out and concentrate on God my Savior, Jesus. I WILL God’s hands to touch my forehead, my temples till I FEEL His touch and experience peace and calm. The situation is still there happily hovering over my head, but then, I have peace and I am calm. I keep repeating, ‘With God all things are possible’ Now I have the courage and strength to carry on, move on , laugh out with the impossible situation still perched safely in the background! Only Hope and Faith can carry you through these difficult situations. Firmly believe that, ‘If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it’ 

 This works wonders for me! 

I love this awesome quote by Christian singer Wintley Phipps :
It is in the quiet crucible of your personal, private suffering that your noblest dreams are born and God’s greatest gifts are given, in compensation for what you have been through.”

How do you deal with an impossible situation? Any feedback is most welcome!
