Have you ever been shocked by something you thought wouldn't ever transpire? Certainly! Life takes us in unlikely places every once in a while and when we reflect on it through our minds rearview mirror, we often laugh and say "I actually thought that would never happen." It's those one in a million 'less likely' moments that bring us the most joy sometimes. Their accompanied joy, is often hard to explain to others because the less likely scenario is usually the one in which no one wants to take place. Imagine those couples who have a strong desire to conceive. I can envision their excitement upon finding out that their long awaited bundle of joy will be arriving in approximately nine months but then finding out that the joy bus would be delivering times two. There's usually immediate anxiety, especially for new parents. But once the babies have arrived, the dust settles along with all of the other doubts and concerns. When their story is shared as time has passed, it's usually filled with laughter about the wonderful 'less likely' occurrence.
Everything doesn't always happen in the way that we would want it to happen but we are a resilient people who are capable of adapting to changing circumstances. If you're currently facing an unlikely situation, try and look on the bright side of it. All unlikely circumstances are not the same, and some are accompanied with a great amount of pain and regret, but take hope in that everything is likely to turn out alright when you face the situation with prayer, honesty, and maturity. Lean back on your yesterday experience and utilize that wisdom for your today.
