John 16:33 reads “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
With that, be in peace that there will be trouble in your life. Don’t become angry when things do not go your way. We’ve been told that there will be trouble in this world. That is a guarantee.
I know from experience that it is hard to embrace that scripture, but in trouble and struggle we must look for the good in it. This is much easier said than done. I am not perfect and I have failed many times in seeing the good during the trouble. From any experience or trial in life, you should try and learn from it. If you learn from it, it will strengthen you.
For a personal example, I missed the good in the bad experience of my back surgeries. Now I look back and realize that it strengthened me emotionally and mentally. I wish I would have accepted this blessing of strength when the event occurred but I was too busy feeling sorry for myself.
You will have trouble in this life, but face it and conquer it and you will have the victory!
Just because you come from a product of failure, that does NOT make you a failure. You determine that.
