God's Way of Molding Us



On examining my life, I have discovered God's way of answering my deepest yearnings is never straightforward. For example, if I desire to travel to Place Z whose directions I am not aware, God will make me pass through jungles, valleys, mountains, deserts and oceans. All the while, I will keep on getting lost and being scared by wild animals.

Coming to think of it, God's way of answering my deepest yearnings has been the same to every truly great individual: Beethoven, Jesus, Lincoln, Newton - just to mention but a few.

You see, every great achievement starts with a dream - be it writing a great novel, playing in the La Liga, getting elected President or producing popular songs. And behind such accomplishments are hours of labor, rejection, criticism and discouragements. Such is the case of going through jungles when desiring to get to Place Z.

Why does God take us through jungles, valleys, mountains, deserts and oceans when we desire to get to Place Z? To increase our wisdom, strengthen our courage, deepen our insights, mold our character, appreciate our victories and develop our empathy.

So no matter how dark our paths become, no matter the opposition we face, let us keep pressing on with attaining our dreams - be it writing a great novel, playing in the La Liga, getting elected President or producing popular songs. The Christian Scriptures aptly advise us, "And let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we shall reap if we faint not."
