Life is a Test

Life as an ever evolving learning adventure, is set to test you. It’ll test you on your faith, your beliefs. The very things you stand for, your core values and principles. It’ll test you to see if you really uphold and live out those things.

Above all, it is set to teach you. I’ve observed that life would continually test you on lessons you’ve forgotten, unlearned or not imbibed. You’ll find similar circumstances repeating themselves and you wonder why. Life is set to teach you and until you learn, you’ll keep repeating the tests…

So how long you repeat, is based on your learning ability. Mistakes will repeat because you haven’t learnt. Life is set to make a worthy man or woman out of you. Life’s a school, we only graduate when we die. So, we do never stop learning, but we can choose to move forward, instead of being stuck repeating cycles of past mistakes. Life’s a teacher and you’re her student. Are you a good one? Or the one failing miserably? The glory they say, is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. The tragedy is falling in so many different ways for the same thing.

A chameleon can only change its color, but it’s still a chameleon. It can only camouflage and attempt to be something else but it’s still what it is. Many times, we wonder why we fall into making the same mistakes. It’s because we’re not looking out for patterns. Patterns of events, happenings, human behavior. TRUST THE PATTERNS, they’re continuous and repetitive. A mistake is a one time event, a pattern is multiple similar events…

I pray the eyes of our understanding will be opened and enlightened to see, know and understand the truth that life tries to teach us. That we’d be good stewards and students…
