Difficult things and people may test what we're made of, but that's okay. These may be opportunities for discovery and growth. To rise to the occasion to meet a challenge is rewarding in and of itself. But even if we are unable to meet the challenge there is still the humbling opportunity to "fail forward" having learned in the process. Don't waste the pain. Use it to help others and glorify God.
In this week's scripture Jesus was tested by the devil. Jesus rose to the occasion, met the challenge, and moved forward while making his way closer and closer to the Cross. Though some saw the Cross as failure, ultimately it led to victory! He rose again! Because Christ lives, so do we!
With you on the journey,
