When I think of the obstacles that we face in our personal lives. I have to include God  

in those thoughts, and understand his part in them. Some may say that God  places trials and tribulations in our path in order to strengthen us in our Christian walk.

 I say that trials and tribulations are created from the world that we live in and the paths that we chose to take. I do believe that we face struggles that are just naturally a part of life and facing them are hard and can become a devastating factor in the way we live. But, the main thing to know is how to avoid coming in contact with the obstacles that hinder our personal growth and freedom. We are in control of our decisions and many times we create our own obstacles.

Also, we must be prepared for any and all obstacles that come our way no matter how they come.
