We all have ways we love to relax. Maybe it’s swinging in a hammock, watching some Netflix, or going to the gym. It’s good for us to kick back, unwind, and enjoy the good things in life. The problem is that sometimes we can use good things to avoid the more difficult things. I get it, we all have tasks or situations we’d rather avoid or put off until later. But maybe we miss something a lot more important when we avoid pain or delay the inevitable. What if God is using your difficult situations in life to develop you as a person, to strengthen your character, and to shape your soul?
