The Lagoon

May be you have heared about the Great Barrier Reef, stretching some 1,800 miles from New Guinea to Australia. Tour guides regularly take visitors to view
the reef.

On one tour, a traveler asked the guide an interesting question.”I noticed that the lagoon side of the reef looks pale and lifeless, while the ocean side
is vibrant and colorful,” the traveler observed. “Why is this?”

The guide gave an interesting answer:”The coral around the lagoon side is in still water with no challenge for its survival. It dies early. The coral on
the ocean side is constantly being tested by wind, waves, and storms — surges of power. It has to fight for survival every day of its life.As it is challenged
and tested, it changes and adapts. It grows healthy. It grows strong. And it reproduces.”

Then he added this telling note: “That’s the way it is with every living organism.” That’s how it is with people. Challenged and tested, we come alive!
Like coral pounded by the sea, we grow. Physical demands can cause us to grow stronger. Mental and emotional stress can produce tough-mindedness and resiliency.
Spiritual testing can produce strength of character and faithfulness .

So, you have problems? No problem! Just tell yourself, “There I grow again!”.

Remember, A smooth sea never made a skilled mariner- English Proverb.
