LEAVE IT IN HIS HANDS
LEAVE IT IN HIS HANDS: At sometime or the other, we all go through a time when it seems as if all life has to offer you is storms and hurricanes. You begin to feel claustrophobic as if life is shoving you in this tiny cupboard with problems that are too big to handle. Your journey and pathway seems narrow, everything seems stuffy and the pressure just seems to get higher and higher. And it’s at this point that all we can feel is despondency.
I remember a time in my life when all it felt like was constant darkness and heartache. I didn’t know which way to go and how to face the struggles that were hurled at me. I began to lose complete hope in everything and felt as if there was no way out. It was like every time I tried something to get out of this space the hole I was in kept getting deeper and deeper.
People may tell you confide in someone that you trust and that will advise you to do the right thing but in the mind of the person going through this struggle it feels as if we are burdening people with our problems. So what is the solution you may ask?
It is quite simple and that is why many a times we may not see it right in front of us. We were created by the Lord that called us ‘ the best of creation’ and that is why that Lord will never forsake us during our troubled times nor will He burden us with troubles too big for us to bear. He brings us to our knees and through this immense struggle so that we can turn to Him and ask for help. And its once we realize that if we trust in His plan coupled with all our efforts that there is no way that we will continue to feel this shattering pain and heartache.
A beautiful life lesson that my mother has always instilled within me is that when you don’t know what is going on in your life, just breath and say “ya Allah I know this is your plan so help me through it”.
My mother always advises me to have Tawakkul ( faith ) that His plan for me is the best plan. So my advice to you is that no matter what you are going through in life always remember to have Tawakkul in Allah’s plans because there is no point in worrying about our heartaches when Allah controls everything, so trust Him.
May Allah Azzawajal remove the obstacles in our lives that bring us heartache and bestow upon us the ability to be able to trust in His plan and turn to Him alone with our sorrows. Aameen.
