The rate at which many people, especially youths are crumbling like packs of cards, getting discouraged, depressed and committing suicide due to life’s challenges faced is worrisome and of a great concern to me. Therefore, I have decided to write this new encouragement series as a follow up to my earlier series in this blog advising against suicide.
Here in this series, I am presenting to us a young man of like passion with us who passed through great challenges but scaled through all in victory. His name is Joseph, a Bible character and a youth. The story of Joseph is written in chapters 37- 50 of the book of Genesis in the Holy Bible.
Joseph experienced many terrible life challenges such as loss of a very loved one, hatred, rejection, conspiracy, physical, mentally and emotional abuse and humiliation by family members, unexpected change of status from grace to grass, sold into slavery, unexpected separation from loved ones, desertion and loneliness, sexual assault and molestation, false accusation of attempted rape, workplace gang up and conspiracy, persecution, injustice, imprisonment and betrayal and many others.
Each one of these challenges when faced and not properly handled is capable of making anyone to become frustrated, depressed, become helplessly hopeless and give up on life. Yet Joseph faced all of them, and handled them positively well. He did not fall into any emotional or mental trauma. He never at any time gave up on life or say any negative word out of his mouth. He never complained or murmured. He maintained his calm, remained strong, courageous, unmovable, hopeful and faithful in the face of all his life’s challenges and he triumphed over them all in victory. How could he, a youth for that matter, achieve these great feats? This series is set to reveal how he came out triumphantly over all his life’s challenges.
The story about the life of Joseph and his many challenges are written in the Bible because God wants each of us to learn from him, become like him and know that it is very possible to live a victorious life. YOU TOO CAN OVERCOME ALL YOUR LIFE’S CHALLENGES. ALL IT TAKES TO OVERCOME IS IN YOU! SO DON’T GIVE UP ON LIFE WHEN FACING LIFE’S CHALLENGES.
I have written this series because I care about you. It is my prayer that through this series millions of people facing one challenge or the other will find succor, comfort and encouragements for their souls.
GOD LOVES YOU AND SO DO I.
