Trials are a blessing

Trials are a blessing

Written by: Chereen

You sit and you wonder where this trial came from, if it has a deadline, and if this deadline will come with a positive outcome.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Then you go back and forth conversing with your thoughts, as you realize that God’s wisdom is so immense and profound. It is something you might never fully understand. But one thing you realize is that this trial he has given you is a blessing in disguise.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And there is wisdom. Surely, there is wisdom.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So instead you tell yourself, what is this lesson trying to teach me? How can I grow from this circumstance? What knowledge is my Lord giving me the opportunity to obtain? And how can I maximize this knowledge so I can help others grow and see the light in a similar situation?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is a blessing. This is surely a blessing, and then you catch yourself worrying about not having a trial in the future because trials are for the believers. Trials are a reminder to you that God is there and He is giving you this amazing opportunity to ask for His mercy, and to gain this closeness that not everyone is given the opportunity to attain.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So you hold onto your trial. You fear telling others about this love story that you have deep in your heart, because this is between you and your Lord.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It took you time to get to this point. It took barely crawling forward until you gained the courage to take baby steps. And now all you want to do is run towards your Creator.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Trials are for the believer. And you, dear beautiful soul, are blessed by the One who created you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
