What Do You Do When Life Happens?

At one point or another in our lives we will face difficult and trying times. This is a reality of life; not a lack of faith. Maybe just like me you have endured your share of storms which threatened to drown your hope.

We don’t choose what happens to us, but we choose how we react. From the beginning ot time on earth, God has given us freedom to make choices. We are not puppets on a string, nor is God a bully forcing us to do His will. Everyday life presents us with choices. Therefore when life happens, we can choose to be either bitter, or better. There is a saying that goes, “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.”

Painful experiences have the power to destroy us if we let them. They also have the power to develop us if we let them. The choice is still ours.

I share my life hoping it might encourage you to forge through trials and to come out radiant on the other side.

Join me on my journey to wholeness.

  1. Thank you so much. At times it feels like you are the only one going through trials. You feel like others don’t have the problems we have.

  2. When life happens I believe it happens for a reason. I look forward to this journey and concur that it’s about ones choices and focus on positive energy even in the midst of chaos. With God as the manufacturer and captain of one’s life ship the titanic syndrome is already defeated and wholeness becomes a reality.

  4. Wow! Congratulations Tavy. Life is a journey indeed, you meet stop signs and traffic lights. When you meet them, you need to pose and reflect on the Word of God, meditate on the word of God, sing praises and worship songs, that will sanctify your mind and be able to see when the will and purpose of God in your life, which is like a green light of the trafgic lights which gives you a signal to go because the road os clear, there wont be any other car coming.

    The bible says: if only you can obey me, if only you can allow me to help you, I will make you rich. Meaning rich on the wisdom of God which will make you see your inheritance in Christ Jesus.

    The bible went further to say: I wish above all things that you may prosper and be of good health. And we are a seed of Abraham who never got seek, when he went through tribulations, he was aleays confident that there is always a way out.

    The Lord is our strength. We just need to Hold on His word and fellowshiping with him in prayers. We will receive the inner strength and light that will continue to shine through every dark moments that we come through our life journey. He is our everlasting light and father.

  5. Hi Octavia, what a beautiful initiative! This reminds me of 1 Peter 5:9 Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings”. We thank God because we know for sure that He has given us all the weapons to defeat the enemy with.
    Phambili sisi. May the Holy Spirit overshadow you in this beautiful journey in Jesus Name

  6. This resonates. My favourite verse is Luke 22:31. Indeed the enemy comes to sift us but Jesus says I have prayed that your faith does not fail. I am encouraged by your message. Keep ministering hope.

  7. I couldn’t agree with you more, coming to think of it the happenings of life didn’t begin today, from the days of Adam and Eve, life happened. This are people who had an experience to see God eye to eye yet they were deceived by enemy and that caused them generational disappointment .Today many still refer to them when life is hard you will hear them saying had it not been for Adam and Eve we wouldn’t be going through this and that.
    Most of the happenings of life hurts and the truth is none of us can ever get used to the hard site of life no matter how many times life happen to us it still hurts, but the hope and the confidence we have is that many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers them from all.
