When trails come, as we know they will, examining your heart is something you need to do.
Examining your heart can be a scary thing, and often we don't like what we see. However, this forgotten practice raises the question: Are you giving God room to move, or is He going to have to move something out of the way? I've been in so situations before where I'm the thing He has to move out of the way.
When the troubles do come though, that's our cue to step back and just take a deep breath. It's almost a sign for us to start looking and really paying attention to what extraordinary blessing and action that God is going to take next. I can promise you that it will blow you away.
