Learning From Our Losses
Challenges get thrown at us in life that we don't always understand. But behind every challenge that we face there is a lesson to be learned. When we feel like we are losing at everything, rather than asking why these things keep happening, ask, "What am I supposed to be learning from this situation?" It is easy to see when we look back how certain hardships can be life forming, turning us into the person we were meant to be. When you are in the midst of a hardship that lesson can be harder to see, but I promise you it is there. God can take any bad situation and turn it into something glorious. Winning feels better but the fact is we learn more from our losses. You often see it in sports, the team that goes on the championship run most likely had a bad loss, a losing streak or a terrible year the previous season, but they learn from it and they build themselves into something even better. Without the loss they would never have figured out how to win.
