Human beings are endowed with immeasurable potentials and
abilities. Only a few of them start working as soon as a
person realizes that he has them and begins using and
polishing them. On the other hand, there are numerous
unexplored potentials that are found in a person that lie
dormant. They only come to the surface when circumstances are
tough and trying. This is because these potentials are
sparingly used because they lie beneath one’s threshold and
every day use.
In other words, a time of crisis is the best time to nurture
and nourish these hidden potentials. It is like calling our
reserves to help with one big difference: more often than not,
we do not even know they exist. It is only when the crunch
comes that we realize how vastly we have been supplied by
providence with tenacity and toughness.
Times of crises also help us come closer to our Creator. We
tend to call upon Him more and invoke Him more from the depth
of the heart. This strengthens our faith and gives us another
type of toughness that may help us to become righteous
Let us then never run away from trials and tribulations or get
bogged down by them. We must remember that at times adverse
currents are meant to make us fly higher and higher!
