I don’t care who you are, you will experience trials in your life. Not one person is exempt from them. If this were the case you wouldn’t be here on earth. That’s what life is about. Growing. Learning. I don’t know about you but I sure don’t grow when life is peachy.
I believe that’s why we ALL experience them. So when I am hit with a trial, I know that blessings and growth are waiting right around the corner for me. But I have to do my part and seek them out. I have to find the silver lining. I have to ask God what he wants me to learn from it all.
No, it’s not always easy but we are strong human beings. We can get through anything with faith.
I have learned that it is my approach to trials that makes all the difference. I can roll up in a ball and give up or I can face them head on. I can be angry and mad or I can understand that it’s for my own good.
I look at trails as a token of LOVE from God. Here’s why……because it’s his way of telling me that He knows I can be more and He wants me to be more. Even as painful as a trial can be, I know it’s for my own good.
I think too often we say, “show me a miracle and I will show you my faith” and God is saying, “show me your faith and then I will show you a miracle.”
