Life is not always what it seems to be. It's not always happy, it's not always fun and it's not always easy. As crappy as it may sound, but it's the truth. Moments where we don't always get what we want, we don't always expect things to go the wrong way, or the hard way. All these are a part of the journey we call life. These they say, make us who we are. TRIALS. Trials don't always come to make things unbearable. They also come in our lives probably to tell us something.
Below are some of the things it does to us. I've listed 4 things and through these, I hope you'll figure out the amazing part of what seems to be unbearable at times, help us attain something in life.
1. Trials Test Us
Trials are a test of faith. It's like taking an exam in school. Whatever the questions are should come with the right answers. A student who studied and reviewed well would probably get most if not all of the answers right. The same thing goes in life. God tests our faith to prove how much we've learned in our faith or probably how much we've grown.
2. Trials Mold Us
Trials make us who we are. It shapes our character. God is the the potter and we are the clay, He molds us to get us in the right shape. Trials form us to make us the best of who we are.
CONSIDER IT PURE JOY, MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WHENEVER YOU FACE TRIALS OF MANY KINDS, BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT THE TESTING OF YOUR FAITH PRODUCES PERSEVERANCE.
3. Trials Teach Us
It trains us to do things we've never done before. I remember when my dad lost his job, he learned to do things at home. Whether it be to paint, to cook, do the laundry and a whole lot of other things he's never done before. That's what trials do too. It teaches us to stand firm in our faith. It also prepares us for something bigger and better.
4. Trials Strengthen Us
As it is in sports, so it is in our faith. Our faith helps us to get up whenever trials knock us down. For in our weakness, there is strength. It builds us up. Trials nourish our spiritual lives like never before.
There it is! So don't think that trials always come to make our lives miserable; because in reality, it doesn't. It makes our lives hard but if we try to stand up whenever we fall down, we become stronger like never before.
To God be the glory!
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough...
