We often wonder why we go through hard times. But, it is the hard times that bring blessings.
You need to be planted in dirt (which is your troubles) so you have soil to grow from. Then you need water (the storms of life we go through) to nourish you. Then you need heat from light (hard times) to give you more nourishment. Then once you’ve been planted and nourished, you blossom. And it is not that you walked into your blessings. It is that your blessings grew double the trouble you came out of.
