I have been reading a devotional with friends I met online at my YouBible.
What if (blank) that I am going through is really a gift to help me find my way? What if pain is my friend?
I think that the good life is just beyond whatever I am struggling with. If I can just get through this grief about (blank), then everything will smooth out. *
But what if another and different trial is scheduled for after I get through this one? Hmmm.
Solution: change how I think about my trials.
What is my hope anchored to?
It needs to be something that cannot be messed with by trials.
You’re my one thing. I can count on YOU. You are always kind and wise and You know what to do.
I love You back.
