The Trouble with Trouble
The trouble with trouble is we make it double. When things go wrong, we often make it worse by how we think about the situation. We either launch into fix-it mode, blame mode, or discouragement that our lives aren't better. None of these responses put our hearts at rest but lead us into more frustration. When something goes wrong, remember that the One who loves you is still in control and can fill you with an assurance that He will lead you through the difficulty. Jesus promised peace that does not rely on perfect circumstances. In fact, he explained that imperfection will always be here. There will be "trouble in this world" but to take heart because He has overcome the world. John 16:33 Rather than talk about the trouble, why not trust in the triumph?
