Our Difficulties

January 18, 2020

These nine are from a site called Becoming Minimalist. Whole lotta truth packed in here. I’d like to share one every other day or so with you, filtered through Scripture, for your consideration and application —

8. Understand the Reality of Trials in Life.

Every person in life is either in the middle of a trial, has just emerged from one, or is heading toward the next.

Trials and storms come and go—sometimes as a result of our own poor decisions and sometimes as the result of living in an imperfect world.

Trials often become the very thing we most wish to escape in life—sometimes for good reason.

But given the nature of their constant existence, how can we learn to appreciate the life we have in the midst of these trials?

First, we embrace the reality of their existence.

And second, we look for the good in the midst of them (no matter how hard we need to look).

Christ Jesus: “In this godless world you will continue to experience difficulties. But take heart! I’ve conquered the world.” (John 16:33)
