Trials come for a purpose

Submitted by Stephen Winters

Trials come to either tear you down or to build you up, your choice. If you run from the trial you are slowly torn down and become less capable. Trials often come to teach us lessonsH. If you face the trial head on, keeping a good attitude, resting when you need to, studying out and working through the problem, you become more capable, more knowledgeable and less afraid.
Face your problems with acceptance and a good attitude.Learn to work with life, don't avoid life or fight against it. Face your problems with acceptance and a good attitude.

Trials and tribulations come for a purpose to either teach and train us, to give us direction, or to mature us. "He who endures to the end (of the trial) will be saved (made whole, corrected, or matured). This applies to each and every trial that comes our way. If we run from the trial or fight it, then we don't learn the lessons and don't receive the growth that submitting to and perservering through the trial brings. Then a stronger trial may come our way because we didn't learn the lessons of the earlier trial.

Many of us are weak and immature in many areas. We struggle helplessly, wanting change and freedom, but now knowing how to attain them. We want the quick and easy way out. We continue to cause many of our own problems because of our ignorance, our selfishness, and our immaturity. Trials come intensely over a long period of time to thoroughly burn into us ... and to mature us and teach us...

Trials come to teach, train, and to prepare us for that which lies ahead. Blessings lie on the other side of the trial. The blessings are a fruit of the trials. If we try to avoid the trial, then we miss out on the blessings and fruit of the trial as well.
