On trials and tribulations

As I was scrolling through my Instagram feed this amazing picture popped up: 

Turn your trials into life experiences

Wow. That really got me thinking. 

Every one has trials. It's the seemingly hard, cold truth. But with the right attitude.... It doesn't have to be. 

You've probably heard it a million times: Trials are for our own good. But it's true! I promise. 

Through trials we learn to depend on our Heavenly Father. We learn to truly pray with our hearts and to trust. Our faith grows to unimaginable heights. We become humble as we realize that we are not perfect, at the same time we become more confident as we realize we can do hard things. We are more grateful because what we before took for granted may not be there anymore. We become patient and learn to trust the Lord's timing as we wait for our tails to end. 

We become who our Heavenly Father designed us to be

So instead of grumbling and complaining through our trials....remember all the ways you can grow. 

 Just like the important life changing experiences we usually think of, such as weddings and birthdays, that will be told over and over. We have to remember our trials and tell them to our posterity. They will gain so much wisdom from them. Turn your trails into experiences. Don't forget about them and move on- remember them!

Have a wonderful day!
