Wisdom Wednesday Faith Reflection

It has been a couple of weeks since we last connected and I miss you too :-). Over the past couple of weeks, I've visited some spiritual places that helped shape this Wednesday's blog-ver-sa-tion for brief a reminding reflection.

Everything we encounter has reason, purpose and a relevant message. A message can serve as a reminder; it also could teach us a lesson, while warning an individual/group from falling into error and/or even out of error. Simple reminders come to humble our future actions. Humility enable us to embrace these reminders and accept Divine constructive criticism.

Have you recently experienced a trial that was not comfortable and felt like an unfair hand? An episode that makes you wonder, what is the purpose or message?. Let's admit, we do not think these experiences are directly meant for us or it's just a natural consequences taking place. Thinking back on life, there were situations and issues that should have corrected our behavior, but for some reason we kept it pushing. 
This is the part of this blog-ver-sa-tion where things can become a little touchy and you'll say, "is he talking about me" no only speaking toward self and the path I've seen.
What I have learned is - life's trials are meant to purify the soul and drop-off heavy luggage, reconstruct negative thought patterns, and alleviate falsehoods we've been holding onto. The tongue mixed gumption can get us into some trouble and nullify a good intention, that would last a spiritual lifetime. Until we say, "I understand and submit to truth" some trials will continue to occur (The Creator Knows Best). Subsequently this is where humility should kick in, to comfort us and we embrace anything constructive to comprehend.
Humility (adjectival form: humble) is the quality of being modest and respectful. Humility, in various interpretations, is widely seen as a virtue in many religious and philosophical traditions, being connected with notions of egolessness.
The Creator's Messengers dealt with some humbling experiences. Leaders who were held accountable for the safety of their constituency; facing extreme conditions, we ourselves could not bare today.

Think about Job and his family, Jonah in distress, and Muhammed (PBUH) losing his male children. Jesus Son of Mary being considered an outcast for his Gospel, Abraham in the "fire!", Adam and Eve commanded to leave the paradise and seek Divine Guidance on Earth. Some major trials that humbled these men and women in hope of their Creator's Mercy (May Peace and Blessing be upon those mentioned).
"Or do you think that you will enter Paradise while such [trial] has not yet come to you as came to those who passed on before you? They were touched by poverty and hardship and were shaken until [even their] messenger and those who believed with him said,"When is the help of Allah ?" Unquestionably, the help of Allah is near" 2:214
Embrace whatever trials you maybe facing with patience and surround yourself with good company of sound knowledge. "Seek what could benefit you, leave your trust with the Creator and do not look back." I know, easier said than done. Know whatever you give the Creator, you'll find it with Him in rewards greater than you gave. #createavoice
