Life has a way of testing your commitment to a certain cause, principle, or even person. They are called obstacles. Setbacks. Things not going according to plan.

You mustn’t lose faith.

I repeat: you mustn’t lose faith.

What is that, you ask?

The ability to walk through fire, knowing that you’ll come out the other side alive. Burnt, maybe, but alive.

This is required of you is you are ever to achieve anything of importance.

Give up when the obstacles seem insurmontable and you fail. You lose confidence, self-esteem, self-worth.

It is rather simple, isn’t it?

The choice is yours. You must decide each time life tests you, if you are stronger than the test or not, if you wish to continued and succeed or not, if you have the guts, the strength, and the brains to go on, inspite numerous challenges and setbacks.

Life does not compute to a plan, a recipe, or a step-by-step guide. Life is unpredictable, mysterious, and unless you expect that, you’ll get your heart crushed and broked on an almost daily basis.

Expect the obstacles, expect this: that whatever is is you’ll do, you’ll kind of fail at it at least a few times. It is going to be more difficult than you expect, but never as difficult as to not be worth trying at all. And giving your best.

  1. Wow. Been there. Your post is insightful. Inspiring. Motivational. I’ve been burned before but not lost forever.

  2. I like the blog. Quitting is a sign that one is having a little strength which is not good for success in life

    Cristian, I’m so pleased to see your Spiritual development and Maturity on display. It’s an inspiration to me, and I’ve been on my personal voyage of Faith longer than you’ve been born

    To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

    Been there. Felt that. The only way is to keep moving and never give up. I’m slowly trying to pick up the remnants of my darkest days, but I’m learning that it’s okay to be where I am. So inspirational. Thank you!
