Overcoming Obstacles

Overcoming Obstacles

James 1:2-4 - My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Know this, that the trying of your faith worth patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Imagine that its Saturday morning and all is well. Your child has had some breakfast and “Clifford the Big Red Dog” is playing on your television. The cartoon, one she picked out, was a welcome break from the usual “Barney” or “Sesame Street.” However, lets face the fact that two year olds have short attention spans. It did not take long for Bella, my little one, to leave my side, when something caught her eye. The object of her affection was a small ceramic candle holder that was on the highest shelf of this book case. This high shelf is easily reachable by any adult but it would take the tippy toes for Bella to have a chance. She wandered across the room, reached up high and successfully managed to slide the saucer where she could grab it. In the process, however, the little candle holder fell back and could not be reached. Of course, this immediately set her to wining for assistance because she could not get to it on first try. Being the wonderful father that I am, I remained seated and continued my study. Her pleas increased and I reminded her that she has a step stool. Eagerly she secured her stool and brought it over to the fortress of her frustration, aka, bookcase. She struggled to place it and the wining in-sued. I heard her, but it was more beneficial for her to figure it out herself. She did in a minute or so and accomplished her mission. Her fascination with the candle holder lasted about as long as it took to get it but she learned a valuable lesson. She learned that trials can be lessons.

Christian, many times we act much the same when faced with a trial. I recognize that trials we face as adults are much more daunting than the one Bella just overcame but the principle still applies. Learn from your trials. As her father, I kept a watchful eye on the situation. Had the bookcase budged, I was ready to leap into action. I didn't fix the problem for her but I guided her toward a solution. How much more does God guide us! Bella listened to her father’s guidance to get her footstool. Christian are you willing to listen to the guidance of God. Do not be overcome with frustration in your trial, but overcome your trial with faith!
