Here comes trouble

I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to him, and he answered my prayer. Ps. 120:1

The important thing is not why the trouble happens but where it will lead. Troubles sometimes redirect our steps onto great paths we’d never have chosen for ourselves. Troubles sometimes test our strength and make us stronger still. Troubles that we take to God give Him an opportunity to be God in our lives and give us the opportunity to trust Him more.
Lord, I’d rather avoid them but lead, strengthen and direct me through the troubles I do encounter.
