Be Thankful for the Challenges

We all face challenges, some more than others, but nevertheless each day we wake there is something staring us down waiting to be overcome. Many times we view these challenges with a “woe is me” attitude. We complain and are fearful of what’s ahead. I’d like to offer a new way of viewing these seemingly endless onslaught of tests that await each day.

Be thankful you have a challenge to face. There are many that would kill (and some do) to have a hill to climb, something to overcome but due to their location/social class/whatever have no such opportunity. Viewing situations with a joyous heart towards God who has allowed you to face something that can make you better and improve your life will dramatically change your point of view. And most importantly in my opinion, allow you to overcome more than you thought you could.
