It can be frustrating when we try our best at something and face disappointment or rejection. The Bible talks about this:
“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.” (Romans 5:3-5 NLT)
It’s hard to understand this when we are faced with a difficult situation…how am I supposed to rejoice when nothing is working out as I planned? We want everything on our plan, our timing. it. When things don’t work out exactly as we planned, we can find ourselves doubting God. But God knows what we need and when we need it. By trusting Him, and praying for guidance, we can develop a deeper faith. And THAT is definitely worth rejoicing!
