Motivating Monday ~ More than I can handle

I LOVE inspiring things to motivate me and I thought what better of a day to read inspiration than on dreadful Mondays. If you would like to write something you think will inspire or motivate others PLEASE link up!! I’d love to read your words and I’m sure that others would as well!

I was going back and looking at old posts this past week for the Back to Blogging event over at the SITS girls and I saw this from an old Just a Motivating post I did back on August 31, 2009. I really enjoyed reading it and thought it would be a good one to bring back and post for this week’s Motivating Monday. Enjoy!!

“I know God will not give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish that He didn’t trust me so much.” ~Mother Teresa

I don’t think that this life was ever intended to be easy. I know that we are here to learn and to grow, and a free, easy ride is definitely not going to help us out there. Why does it sometimes have to get downright dirty then?

There is a lot of tragedy in this world, and unimaginable things actually happen to people…. people who you wonder how in the world they do it. They do though. They get through those unimaginable life events, they move on, they grow, they learn, and sometimes they have enough strength to hug someone who is going through what they once endured and give the exact support they need.

I do tell myself often, we will get through this. We always get through everything, and we have experienced some not so fun circumstances. I think back on one of the most heart wrenching things I’ve ever had to go through and that was losing our baby girl, {Mya}. You hear of 2nd and 3rd trimester losses, but never think it will happen to you. Although it was heart wrenching, I got through it. Although I miss her, I’m still here, and have found happiness in my life regardless of the traumatic even I had to endure. I have found reason as to why it happened…. because I really, truly believe that everything happens for a reason…. and sometimes we just have to search for that reason. I found a rainbow at the end of my storm and that rainbow is a beautiful, precious little girl that I can’t get enough of. If there was a Mya, there’d be no Ella.

I wish God didn’t trust me as much as he does sometimes, but the thing is he does trust me. He knows that I will find a way to learn and grow from the experiences that I have to go through, but I still sometimes wonder why. I do have enough faith, however, to know there definitely is some reason. If I stick around and try to figure it out I usually find the answer, and then try to accept it, learn from it and more importantly grow from it.

We might not like that God trusts us as much as he does, but the thing is he does trust us, and that in itself is an honor.

  • I only just read this post now (I’m a little behind on my blog reading!) and it brought tears to my eyes. Maybe because I’m pregnant, maybe because I’m generally an emotional sap or maybe simply because its heartbreaking to hear of the loss of a child. Regardless, you are a very brave and strong woman and I’m so glad you were able to find your rainbow :)

    • Thank you, Jenn :) We all have a rainbow at the end of our storms… sometimes it just takes a while to find it. The loss of a child is never an easy subject to read about ~ especially when pregnant!!
