Facing setback—or opportunity?

This may be a familiar scenario: Just when you think things are going smoothly, and all indicators say, “Full steam ahead!” something takes a sour turn. Maybe a new job doesn’t pan out as we had hoped, or a cherished project suffers a setback. Perhaps a physical challenge arises just when the way seemed clear for greater progress.

Such experiences can feel perplexing, even unfair. But one thing I’ve come to see is that there’s more going on in these situations than meets the eye. Even when I feel I have been leaning on God to care for and protect me, there is still more for me to learn about divine goodness. 

We'd love to hear from you!
