Before I begin, I'd like to dedicate this post to SimiSpeaks. She is and has been my biggest cheerleader. She's always on my ass about keeping on top of my blog and I appreciate her for that.

The idea for this post came from me waking up early one morning, at around five a.m. and going downstairs, trying to find something to watch on t.v. I channel surfed for a while and landed on Joel Osteen's sermon. The man is genius, I couldn't change the channel.

He said something that finally made sense to me today. He said that all we go through, the trials, tribulations, are there to get us ready. Stay with me, you'll get it in a minute, took me about two days to get it.

He talked of he and his wife being sued by the new owners of the home they had sold. The suit lasted for six long months and Osteen was beside himself with fear and anxiety. Ultimately the suit was thrown out and he and his wife moved on. Three years later, he was being sued again, but he said that he wasn't nervous at all because he knew he could overcome it. And that's what brings me back to this post.

I understand now that the turmoils I went through was to get me ready for the real shit that will hit the fan, so to speak, so that I don't wilt under the pressure.

This life never ceases to amaze me at how it works. God knows what He's doing. We should leave Him alone and let Him do His thing.
