Disappointments and pain are inevitable here on this earth, but we can always choose how we respond to them. We can blame others, turn to drugs and alcohol for relief, and just give up in frustration. Or we can respond in the right way and view our trials from God’s perspective. This helps us realize our difficulties are opportunities for spiritual growth. We know that life will not always be easy, but because we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, He will always see us through.
