It is natural, when facing challenging relationship issues, to ‘lean out.’ We tire of the conflict, grow weary of the tension and resist the situation that is before us. Resisting the problems, however, will not make them go away. We cannot magically make them disappear. Scripture tells us to “Consider it joy…when you meet trials of various kinds” (James 1:2). So, today, when you encounter various trials, lean in. Approach the problems and see how God uses it to challenge you and help you grow.
