A patient asked, “Will you pray with me again today, or are you tired of hearing about this trouble?” She had called me a couple of times in the past on the same issue. Progress was occurring, but still more to be made.
Without hesitation I replied, “Of course I’ll be happy to pray with you. I never get tired of loving!”
After I hung up the phone, I thought, “Now that’s the way all problems should be viewed, not as troubles to get anxious about, but as opportunities to love more.
Do you view troubles in your life that way?
Do you see them as opportunities to love more? Or do you use them as excuses to complain more? There’s a big difference.
The choice you make determines how fast you get to a solution.
