Why does trouble come? what do we do in the face of trouble? Do you surrender to fate and accept trouble or do you embrace trouble when it comes? Tell me, who likes trouble in the first place, to talk about embracing it. I don’t like it and I am quite sure that you don’t either!. But then we still face it one way or another.
We have trouble dealing with our growing children,those little pinked face cuties of yesterday are growing into adulthood per seconds now they don’t want you interfering or invading their privacy! excuse me,whose privacy? A twelve year old? That’s story for another day. we have trouble dealing with spouses ,families,friends, colleagues and the list goes on. We have trouble dealing with ourselves.

For as long as we are still on this life’s journey, there will be doses of trouble here and there,and if that’s the case,it will be better if go through whatever it is with “Intentional calmness”. not whining about the troubles or problems.
Let me encourage you as I encourage myself, that whatever trouble you may be facing right now,that you and God are a majority in any situation you may find yourself. Trouble means you are a card carrying member of the human race.
Trouble reminds each of us that we are all working progress.It reminds us that our worldly possessions are not enough to help us get out of the ruts we may find ourselves. When God is with you,you can go farther in a day,what you are trying to achieve in a life time of struggles.
“Many are the afflictions of the righteous,but the LORD delivers him from them all.
Adversity leads to accomplishment!
