Sometimes life deals you such a blow that you struggle to find your footing. You reel from the impact even though if you are honest you will admit you saw it coming.
You go through all the details, all the conversations, all the clues that you chose to ignore.
But, even while knowing what you know, it still knocks you out, takes the wind out of your sails.
Then you stop. You think.
If you are going through this then it must mean it was meant to happen. Which means you are strong enough to handle it. Which means it is all going to be okay.
Because Allah doesn’t place a burden on you more than you can bear.
Which means you need to go through this.
This hurt, this smallness, this pain. You are meant to go through this.
You smile. You straighten your shoulders. You put aside your self pity.
You will come out on the other side victorious and grateful.
Grateful that it isn’t a bigger tribulation.
Grateful that you could see the wisdom behind your challenges.
