Trials & Tribulations

What are trials and tribulations and how do they apply to your life?

Trials and tribulations are defined by Merriam-Webster Dictionary (2018), as difficult experiences, problems, etc. (Merriam-Webster, 2018).

Trails and tribulations are those things you face in life that cause chaos to occur. They are tiny little tests that you face, that test your patience and endurance. It is a test to see if you are going to let the stress and aggravation from that trial and tribulation, further you from your purpose in life.

Do you understand how trials and tribulations apply to your life yet?

Trials and tribulations are those constant chaotic things you face. Trials and tribulations are a distraction from your purpose because they cause you stress, anger, pain, etc.

If you change your approach to the next trial and tribulation you face you can learn something. Think about it, you can learn something from everything you encounter, rather it is positive or negative. Either way, you learn something

The way you approach trials and tribulations will determine if you allow them to hinder you from your purpose. For example, if something negative happens to you, then you tend to remain negative about similar situations, or experiences, with or without the same people being involved in it! Same for positive experiences.

The way you feel about the situation will determine if it has a positive or negative response, but if you change your approach to how you feel about the situation. You can find positive in the situation instead of negative. You will find those trials and tribulations are not as bad as you think, they are merely tests!

Seriously, think about it, if something negative happens there is always something positive somewhere in it, you just have to find it.

This is where we as humans fail! We don’t realize that if we only change our approach to the way we look at things or do things, we can see something different, or have a different outcome!

I encourage you to stop allowing the trials and tribulations of your life to hinder you from your purpose anymore! Change your approach!

Stop being narrow-minded and see the bigger picture! You were born for a purpose! It is up to you to find that purpose and tap into its greatness.

You have the ability to change your approach! All you have to do is try! STOP letting trials and tribulations distract you!



“Trials teach us what we are; they dig up the soil, and let us see what we are made of”

Charles Spurgeon

“People have to go through trials and tribulations to get where they are at. Do your thing – continue to rock it – because obviously, God wants you here”

Kendrick Lamar

“A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials”

Lucius Annaeus Seneca
