And boy, do I have trouble on my mind.
We aren't guaranteed an easy life. And if we're honest, we don't really want one. The times we learn and grow are the times we are challenged. We just have to be willing to turn ourselves in the direction of growth, instead of stagnation. When we fail to progress and develop ourselves, we cheat the opportunity to bring about new possibilities. I find myself struggling with those facts. All the overwhelming thoughts of trouble on my mind make me want to sit, and do nothing.
I need to remind myself...
In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
- John 16:33
I'm called to lean on God in times of trouble (and in times of peace).
I always do...eventually.
