Lord, I know it’s not a matter of IF trouble will come, but WHEN it will come. Help me to be prepared for those troubles and bring You glory in how I react to them. Remind me that troubles give me an opportunity to grow and mature as a Christian. Forgive me for my bad attitude about my past trials. Help me to see them as opportunities to grow in Jesus Christ as I face them in the future, and learn what I need to learn from them so I can move on in faith from now on.
