The frustration... the failure... the disappointment... the rejection...
It's so easy to regret and loath the uncomfortable days on our journey.
It's also easy to forget that those turns along the road brought us to where we find ourselves today!
If we can sincerely get past our feeling sorry for ourselves and see life from a bigger perspective, most of us have to admit that we're better off than most. That, although it's been a tough road, it's been a good one.
I, for one, want to be thankful this week for the hard times.
I want to embrace the work of God through struggle.
