Y'all, sometimes tough situations happen in our lives and it's just a given that they will show up in one way or another.
In my daily devotional today.. it talks all about this. (I read Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence you can purchase HERE)
"Do not resist or run from the difficulties in your life. These problems are not random mistakes; they are hand-tailored blessings designed for your benefit and growth"
How TRUE is that.
Sometimes it's hard to take a difficult situation and take a step back and ask yourself 'What am I supposed to learn from this? How is this helping me to grow?'
But, the fact of the matter is.. if we started to look at our tough situations like this.. it would make our lives so much more enjoyable because we wouldn't dwell on the bad stuff.. we would pick ourselves up and get moving towards the next thing.
I think it's really important for us to not dwell on the yucky things in our lives. We have to learn from our mistakes and know that there is a lesson in everything we go through.
Pray this prayer today: Dear Heavenly Father, today I ask for you to show me the lessons in my struggles. Help me to not dwell on the negative things and look for the positives in each day. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
