The challenges of life often challenge our gratitude the most. From loss to stress to frustration it isn’t always easy to find time to be grateful in these circumstances. But being able to find some way to appreciate both our uphill climbs and our downhill slides can offer us some of the deepest moments of gratitude there are.
Over the years I’ve heard all sorts of sayings about life’s challenges…
That which doesn’t kill us, only makes us stronger.
God won’t give us more than we can handle.
I try to keep both of those in mind when things get rough. There has to be a reason for life’s challenges right? Otherwise they wouldn’t happen. Even though it would be nice to have a perfect world with no challenges, would we appreciate what we had if everything was peachy all the time? So yes, I’m grateful for the little reminders… but at the same time, I wish God didn’t think I could handle so much 😉
