Before, against, and after

The “Lessons in Space” Series

Part 3

The human condition. Before: We are born and have no control over ourselves. We must learn it. And we do as we grow up.

We add “powers” to ourselves, finding what will budge and what won’t in life. We, then, come to believe that we are in control of our lives. We make plans and have dreams. We feel hopeful. Until…

We come up against life.Opposition and difficulty comes. There are leaks and tears, betrayals and hurts, mistakes and failures. We pray, “God, remove this trial from me!” But there are others throughout history and around the world who have prayed a different prayer: “God, give me strength to endure this trial.”

Sometimes what we think is a blessing isn’t. Sometimes what we think is a curse isn’t. But we only discover this after.
