When all around us seems to make us look so small

                                             “We throughout Mankind seem so small to all that is around us”

As we walk our paths of our journey of life, there are many things that come before us on our paths, life throws us many curve balls, to which we swing and miss, til we get it right then actually make contact on the ball of life. There are many life events that come to us, some being small, others being large and force us to become someone we are truly not, these events can and will control who we are and were we are going if we let them, these events when faced head on and attacked with no fear, will never bring long term pain and suffering, true there may be some pain, but the pain won’t be as great when we attack these events head on, like they come to us.

These events when we let control us, will have our judgements so far in the clouds, that we may seem to never see any way out? Although when we stay true to who we are and stay true to the faith in Jesus Christ, the way out of the clouds is closer than we actually see, being true to ourselves is having true faith in our ability to overcome anything that may cross our paths. Just as these tree tops in the picture may seem a long way up, they actually are not very tall, as we only think with our clouded judgement that they are far away, but when we have faith in our ability, we can figure out the way to achieve these tree tops.

We throughout Mankind are creatures like all the other creatures on this God created Planet. We are also the smartest of the creatures just that, when these live events come to us and control every fiber of our being, we quickly become the dumbest of all the creatures. Sometimes these events bring so much pain to us, we want nothing more than rid ourselves of this pain, so we try to move forward as quickly as we can, meanwhile all we do is bury the pain deep inside us and put forth this fake self on the exterior, so nobody will see at first sight our pain. When we bury the pain it never leaves us, as it only grows further deep inside us, til one day we explode and become someone we truly are not, than nobody not even us ourselves recognize who or what we have become.

Life is full of experiences and events, ” it is how we deal with the events, that give us a great experience through life”. The only problem with life’s events is, we don’t know at the time that if we handle them correctly, they will always make us better and stronger throughout our paths of our journey of life.

” The tree tops are not as high as we may think, they only look unreachable through our clouded judgements”

” life events happen to all of us for a reason, we have to look deep within in order to see past the event”

Throw the curve ball………

Just as in Baseball when the Pitcher throws a curve ball to get the Batter to swing and miss, Life also throws a curve ball at us from time to time. This curve ball comes to us at every cross road we come to at our paths of our journey of life.

When we come to these cross roads and we have these life events happening to us, we become clouded in our judgements and can’t see the movement of the ball as it gets closer to us, we become out of focus and can’t seem to regain it, so we can swing and make contact with the ball, when the life events are in control then we are in control and can see every rotation of the curve ball.

In the game of Baseball when a player is in a slump, usually means there is something wrong with his approach to the game, or the way he is swinging at the baseball, then the player tries to do too much in order to get out of the slump, than all he is really doing is hurting his game more so, because he is not focusing on the things he needs to focus on, like watching and seeing the rotation of the curve ball, that is about to get into range for a good swing and good contact on the ball, so he can give his team a chance to win the game.

Life for all of us as we walk our paths of our journey, is kind of similar to a Ball Player, only that to a ball player it is a game, to us it is reality and who we become along our journey through life. The concept is similar, just that one has a huge effect on us as a person. These life events are what gets us out of focus, so when the curve ball of life comes to us, we can’t see the spin or the rotation of the ball as it approaches us, which makes us swing and miss all the time.

With these life events and us not handling them correctly, makes for very rough paths along our journey of life. These events will always be there, it is us that have to deal with them properly, when we do deal with them properly, not only will our paths along our journey be smoother, but we will always see the spin and the rotation of the curve ball, to which we will always swing and hit the curve ball, out of this park called life.

” A curve ball before it reaches the plate, will have a spin and a rotation to it, you have to focus on the ball in order to hit the ball for a great length”

” Life’s curve ball is a bit different, but the concept of to focus on whats in front of you, is very much the same, as we all walk this journey through life”
