There’s just something like going through the mountains, woods, and valleys of life. Then when you finally come through all of that you lift up your hands and praise God not only for the journey but for the experience and testimony as well Thank you Jesus!
There are three types of obstacles in life;
1. God trying to teach you a lesson
2. The devil trying to test you
3. You hindering yourself from your full potential…
It’s so super easy to get our daily obstacles and challenges confused. I will say this, there are several moments where it is either 1 or 3, but we don’t recognize it because we are distracted from God at the time. Take your time, pray, and look for the signs around you.

God says, “I’m unleashing miracles! Sweet child look up, look to the sky, and look beyond the sun. I’m right here for you, in you, and beside you. You will not suffer for long. Your miracle is just around the corner. You are my child. This storm will soon pass. Your pain will not last long. The miracle is right next to you. Just focus on me.”

There were two parables that Jesus mentioned in Matthew chapter 13 verses: 44-46. The two parables consisted of a hidden treasure metaphor as well as a metaphor of a merchant man who sold all he had to buy a pearl.
The Kingdom of Heaven should constantly be on our minds all the time. Jesus doesn’t forget you, so why should you forget Him. It’s so easy to be consumed by all of the craziness on Facebook, the news, “personal drama/gossip,” and anything else that we really shouldn’t worry about but we do. Where is Jesus in our lives? Let’s take the time to evaluate ourselves and express to Jesus that we need him, repent, and show him that we love him.
What’s most important? To love and fear the Lord and to keep his commandments. Don’t lose his commandments. We have His words for a reason. We have instructions for a reason. Don’t let His word sit in the corner collecting dust. You need to read it. It’s the best book ever! We should constantly think about all of the awesome things that we won’t have to worry about in the Kingdom and work towards that. Do good, be good, make your Heavenly Father and King Jesus proud!
God says, “There are so many things that you are trying to hide from me. I know how you feel. I know your hearts desire. I want you to give me everything. Give me your pain, give me your sorrows, give me all of your emotions, give me your sadness, give me your weaknesses, give me your burdens, give me EVERYTHING! I am the one who can handle all of that. You cannot. You are not build for all of that pain and sorrows. I love you and will never let you go. So come to me! Empty your heart upon my feet.”
Jesus states in Matthew 11:28-30
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy and burden is light.”
When I get overwhelmed with everything that is thrown at me, the first word that comes to mind is vanity. We have to realize that we must not let life’s circumstances and obstacles consume us. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed and focus on all of the issues that you have and the things that you need to get done. But just know that there is someone sitting at the right hand of the Father who died for you and does not want you to worry. His name is Jesus! He has done so much for …us. We need to realize that all of this is really NOTHING! We should all strive for our purpose in life, but we need to constantly keep in mind that our number one purpose is to fear the Lord and to keep his commandments!
8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.
9 And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
10 The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.
11 The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.
12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil
