Turning Trials into Blessings

Submitted by Stephen Winters

I really enjoy eating. I could easily become the world's fattest man, if I let myself go. I could just eat and eat and eat.

I also notice that many times when I get into an unhealthy pattern of overeating I get sick afterward. Being sick is no fun. But the good part about being sick is that it helps to get me out of the "pigging out" cycle. In fact, when I'm sick, I just don't feel like eating. Whenever I'm sick, I try to eat light (soups, salads).

A trial is something that your mind fights against. Once you stop fighting the trial and submit to the learning process of the trial, then the trial changes. Trials can become blessing once you accept the trial. Trial generally involve bringing changes into your life. If ou fight the trial, the changes can become destructive to you. But once you finally let go of the who thought that you are right, then you open yourself up to building positive in you.

Trials also show who really cares about you.
