Great is his faithfulness; his loving-kindness begins afresh each day. Lamentations 3:23

When you struggle, do you crawl back in bed or look for opportunities to make your situation different? God is a loving and faithful Father who will continue to give us opportunities for growth—even if we don’t like it. The things we learn in the midst of trials will keep us moving forward on the path to achieving His purpose and reaching our goals.

Life is hard, sometimes really hard. We can throw ourselves a pity-party or celebrate what we’ve learned and use them in meaningful ways. The choice is ours. God will provide opportunities, favor and the power to get you where you need to go, but we have to look for them and receive them.

Don’t beat yourself up on missed opportunities or lost time—the Lord can always be trusted to show mercy each morning and He will restore everything the enemy stole. Every. Single. Time.

What are you going to do today to show God you are thankful for His mercy, opportunities, and power?
