Have you ever heard someone say something like: “Life’s an adventure”?
And I suppose I would agree, but I wonder if anyone has noticed that another word for that is “trouble.”
I mean, after all, who would pay to see an “action” movie where the hero didn’t have trouble with anything?
Even Superman has trouble with kryptonite (and, of course, problems with Lois Lane).
So, oddly enough, I sometimes pray for the ability to enjoy at least some of the troubles I have. After all, God has a purpose for my life — adventures and all.
