God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.—Psalm 46:1 (KJV)
Challenges and obstacles are valuable tools for your spiritual growth. The winds of change help shape your faith; define your character and give you the opportunity to rise to life’s challenges with fortitude. Of course, when you’re in the eye of the storm, it can be difficult to see your many blessings… until you trust God’s plan.
In times of trouble, help me to recognize that I am truly free and blessed when I allow You to be in control.
