Personal challenges can also be a gift
This is where the human shock absorber comes in, it's called "courage." When we stand up to problems and look for solutions using our human shock absorber, more often than not we resolve most problems and become stronger for overcoming them.... So, if conquering challenges makes us a better person, maybe God has planned it that way and maybe we should see the bumps as opportunity to strengthen our faith and give us the courage to continue on the path of life with an ever greater resolve. Some things, God wants us to have, other things he chooses that we do not have. Thanks be to God either way!
