DAY 151: Trouble Is a Teacher



Trouble and distress have come upon me, but your commands give me delight. Your statutes are always righteous; give me understanding that I may live.  ~ Psalm 119: 143-144


Do you have those days when nothing seems to work out?  Have you muttered those words, "this day, just sucks."

All of us hit that wall at some point. The challenges mount up against us, and we feel overwhelmed. And facing them alone doesn't help much.

Attempting to "overpower" your ugly situation with only "will-power" is a bad plan. You need more than that.

God gives us helpers. We just have to ask him to open our eyes. Ask for wisdom to find something valuable to learn in the midst of trouble. God promises to never leave your side. (Deut. 31:6).

What are you learning because of your troubled day?
