Finding Joy in Our Trials
In church today, three speakers talked about finding joy in our trials. A part that stuck out to me was when one of the speakers mentioned that sometimes the perspective of our trials can be like looking at a pebble so closely that it appears to be a boulder. We get so focused on our troubles that the problems appear larger than what they really are. For me, finding joy or seeking the positive in my trials means that I take the faith and hope that I have in Jesus Christ and allow myself to cast my burdens on Him, which helps my pebbles really look like pebbles instead of boulders.
