what can i learn from this?

a few months ago, i don't recall when or where, i heard a talk saying that during trials instead of asking god "why me?" we should be asking him "what can i learn from this?" this turns our trials into great learning and growing experiences. ever since i heard that talk i have been focusing on asking god the right questions and it has actually made me become grateful for trials. the lord knows us so much better than we know ourselves and every trial we go through stretches us and allows us to become more like him. we have so much potential for growth. right now i am going through some trials very similar to ones i went through six months ago. it amazes me who much more easily i can handle them now. it is a reminder of how much i have grown which lets me know how much more i can grow.
