Started to blog about 'stuff' that I am struggling with and then this question came up going to really have to think about this one myself......
Sometimes the reality of life is locked behind closed doors because we don’t want to struggle with it in public. We never hear people thanking God when we fail. In fact, many of us have learned to win well, but have never learned how to fail very well.
On the other hand it’s easy to praise God when everything is going great and we’re on top of the mountain. That’s when our talents are highlighted. However, what happens when you’re struggling with failure or persecution? It is when you are struggling in the depths of the valley that your spirit is revealed. And that’s what God wants to get to because that’s the reality of life. That’s where life is really lived, not on top of the mountain. Rather it is when we are struggling in the valleys.
Do you reveal a positive or negative spirit when faced with adversity?
