There are moments where it feels like you're running and running but life still seems to outrun you. You run and think you're finally making progress, maybe even running in step with life and then you tell yourself: "Puh, let me just take a minute to breathe. Enjoy a moment of rest," and boom you seem miles behind once again.
Making decisions can be frightening. "Should I choose door 1, 2 or 3, should I go left or right, should I say yes or no?". And the scariest part about decisions is not even making one but dealing with the consequences. That is the aspect most people fear. What if after making a decision, you discover that it was not what you really wanted, in fact, what you want is with the opportunity you turned down - at least from the outside it appears so.
Trials and tribulations are a reality and part of life. In James 1:2-3 NIV it says: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance." That means when we pass through difficulties and go through the process it helps to build us up. In essence, the struggle is real and for our benefit! So, suffering is good. Struggling is good = all good! Not so fast...
