Psalm 118:24

 This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. 

Some days are more challenging than others.

But the Word of God does not say, “Let us rejoice and be glad in it, unless, of course, it’s one of those really bad ones, in which case it’s okay to curse it and hope that it’s over soon.”

Real growth comes from successfully doing stuff that’s hard, not from doing stuff that’s easy. So the challenge is to see the difficult days as gifts from God too … as opportunities to grow.

A lesson I learned this week.
