Struggles Prepare Us For Life
Every day God tests us through people, pain, or problems. Stop, take a moment, and consider your circumstances. Can you identify the tests of today? Snarling traffic? Threatening weather? Aching joints?
Don't see your struggle as an interruption to life but as preparation for life. No one said the road would be easy or painless. But God will use your mess for something good. "This trouble you're in isn't some kind of punishment; it's training, the normal experience of children...God is doing what is best for us, training us to live God's holy best" (Hebrews 12:8, 10 MSG).
