Opportunities? A dear friend of mine calls every challenge that comes his way an opportunity. He sees them as a chance to learn something, to grow, to address a problem or change something that needs to be changed. I love his attitude.

The Bible says to count it all joy when we come upon trials in our lives. If we look at things the way my friend does it makes this possible. Ultimately what every challenge provides us is an opportunity to trust God. If we worry, get anxious or try to force things apart from Him, that’s not trusting. If we can face our setbacks knowing that God wants the very best for us, and if we seek Him for what can be gained, that’s the “peace that passes all understanding”.
