    TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Are You the Cause of Your Own Adversity?

    Life is filled with adversity and it comes in many forms.

    I’m sure some of you beautiful girls have lost loved ones. Some of you have parents who are divorced. Some of you have been brought up in single-parent families, have family members with addictions or even have vices of your own. Some challenges are bigger than others, right? But they’re all still an ordeal.

    I’m an advocate of overcoming adversity and using it to strengthen our lives; I believe this is God’s intention for hardship. We read stories about it all the time–I even wrote my novel The Destiny of Sunshine Ranch on the theme!

    But what if you’re the cause of your own adversity? What if you thrive on it? What if it gives your life meaning? Some people create chaos or difficulty for themselves because it opens the door to attention from others. But often, self-created adversity gets out of hand and can lead to a downward spiral of darkness.

    Ladies, if you’re finding that you need to be in the midst of drama for the sake of attention, remember this–God wants to give you attention. But His is a positive attention that will elevate your life.

    Look to Christ for meaning in your life. Call out to Him for direction and purpose. He will strengthen your world so you can be helpful to those who are suffering. Your strength and light are needed by someone.

    Girls, do you create adversity for yourself? Do you know other people who do? Do you find that people pay more attention to you when you’re dealing with hard times?
