Your Best Self
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a
little while you may have had to suffer grief in
all kinds of trials. These have come so that the
proven genuineness of your faith—of greater
worth than gold, which perishes even though
refined by fire—may result in praise, glory
and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.—1 Peter 1:6-7 NIV
Although you cannot control everything that happens
in your life, you can control how you react to challenges.
When you approach life’s storms as learning experiences
that will help make you a stronger and better person, you
can see the silver lining of every cloud.
Dear Lord, guide me to being an eager student of life—to
see every struggle as a tool to shape me into my best.
