Ponder:When adversity or loss come my way, do I give in to the devastation? Or do I recognize God equipping me with what I need to face it?
Pray:Father of all gifts, help me to see that not only do You equip me with what I need in the face of adversity, but wondrous growth happens within me in the process.
