There’s a story I heard while teaching in a Bible school in Honduras. A goat fell into a dry well on a farm. The farmer did not like the goat and he needed to fill in the old well. By filling in the well and covering up the hated goat, he could take care of two problems at once. After working at filling the well for a long time, he was surprised to hear the goat call out. To his amazement the goat had been shaking off the dirt, tamping it down, and coming up higher. When the world throws its dirt on you, just shake it off, tamp it down, and go up higher.
Jesus said, “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” Trials, trouble, temptations, and turmoil are a part of life. They can be a tomb stone or a stepping stone. A diamond is formed by intense pressure. A pearl is formed by agitation from a grain of sand. It is evident in God’s creation that good things can come out of adversity. The Bible says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” My attitude in trials will determine my altitude in life. Keep your head up, If God is for us, who can be against us?
