{21} Thankful...

I am thankful for trials.  There.  I said it.  I am really struggling with a trial that I desperately want to fix.  I want to make it all better.  I want to take it and shake it and convince it that it does not have to be this hard.  I can't.  It will be a difficult lesson learned.  I must sit back and let it be.  I can not control it.  I won't make promises that I can keep my eyes open, a smile on my face, or not have the terrible urge to plop myself down in what could be termed a tantrum.  I have so much to learn about enduring trials gracefully.  The Lord promises growth.  I will hold on. 

We are not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us;
we are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be.
C.S. Lewis
