Facing Trials & Tribulations

        Let's face it.  Life cannot always be a bed of roses; there will always be trials and tribultions to face.  God sends them our way to test our faith.  Regard them as blessings.  If we pass, we come out stonger and a better person.  So let's take advantage of every trouble that comes our way; see it as an opportunity for us to trust in our God of love and strengthen our faith.  (Or would your rather complain to God "Why does this happen to me?" and feel sorry for yourself?)  Of course, sometimes we may not pass a severe test at the beginning, but it's the final victory that counts.  We also learn from Scripture that if you love God, he'll never give you tests that you can not pass.  So "welcome" your trouble with God right behind you.
