Crave adversity

None of us like problems.   We hate when our car breaks down and they tell us it is going to cost $1200 to get it fixed.  We freak out when our furnace dies in the middle of the winter and we have to consider selling one of our kids to have it fixed.  We feel stressed out when our marriage or relationship is struggling.  Let’s face it…we despise adversity.

I have been reading a book called “In a pit with a lion on a snowy day” by Mark Batterson.   It is a great book, I highly recommend it.  Chapter 5 talks about facing adversity.  One statement by Batterson has changed my outlook on life.  He wrote, “No problem equals no miracle.”  We can’t see God work in amazing ways when life is always perfect.  If life was always predictable and went as we planned we probably would never pray!  Adversity creates a need in our life for God!

We need adversity.  We need uncertainty in our lives.  That is what makes life worth living.  So if you are facing one of your biggest challenges right now, believe that you can be approaching your biggest miracle.   And since I want to see God do something big and amazing in my life…I guess I’d better crave adversity.

  1. Tim…These are some awesome thoughts but after reading them it has me thinking back to one of the subject lines in your previous post “Random Thoughts” which is (in a nutshell) thanking God every day for everything that is going well in your life.

    This is something I struggle with but I’m begining to realize that if I can to do this (first and foremost every day) it will, in the end, give me strength to overcome any adversity when it arises.

    In other words, I feel that a spirit of thanks will give us an attitude of looking for a “silver lining” in everything that happens by helping us realize that God “loves us” and He has always provided what’s best. That when “rough times” arise it happens according to His will to help us grow (even if we don’t understand it at the time).
