I read this recently: If we all put our problems in a pile and saw everybody else’s, we’d grab ours back!
How great is that!?
Our 'problems' are no random occurrences. Each has been hand-picked by God. If we believe that He has a plan for each one of our lives, and if we trust Him, then we can begin to reframe the way we think about adverse events or circumstances. No longer problems to contend with, but opportunities for growth.
We can shift the emotion or energy we give to our 'problems.' No longer challenges that cause us anxiety or to feel defeated, but opportunities to practice courage and acceptance. Faith strengtheners.
