Be Grateful for Hard Times

With praise and thanksgiving they sang to the Lord: “He is good; his love toward Israel endures forever.” And all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.—Ezra 3:11 (NIV)
Charles Spurgeon said, “Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of.” This is the upside to adversity. Not only do challenges reveal our character—they help us strengthen it. Only when you are navigating a difficult situation do you realize how strong and resilient you truly are.
Lord, tough times have been a great teacher to me. I am grateful that Your strength is my light leading me forward.
