How Should We Face Trials?

Attitude. Perspective. As the saying goes, “Life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we react to it.” -odb

Indeed, very true. In our human frailties, we tend to snap quickly whenever we find or face some situations that challenges our patience, our understanding and those little thing that we found "unsuitable" or "unfavorable" in our end. We are sometimes, if not all the time, so quick to react on negativity. And when we could no longer hold our temper, we tend to explode and burst hateful or hurtful words toward those who "offended" us. That is the usual  cause of broken relationship among families and friends and even colleagues or bosses. Then there's regrets in the end. So, attitude really matters. 

If we allow this kind of attitude in this world, we could never live in peace with anyone. But we all want peace of mind, right? Then let's not complicate life. Let us learn to forgive, to live in humility, to respect others regardless of their status in life, and to lengthen our patience at all times. Yes, that's easier said than done but remember that with God, NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. Thus, we need to pray for it. After praying, we need to make some PARADIGM SHIFTING on the way we think, say and do. 

Have a blessed day with full of patience ahead of you. GOD BLESS
