Flat Tires

Most of us have experienced the hassle of having a tire go down. Our youngest daughter borrowed my truck to visit friends while home for a three day Christmas break, and yes you guessed it, had a flat.
While this was a bit of a nuisance for her, it is likely a repair bill for me. Now before you think I'm complaining about her leaving me with a small expense, I want everyone to know that this is par for the course when owning a vehicle.
But this did get me thinking about the hassles and inconveniences of living. There will be, not might be, times of struggle in this life, but thanks be to God that we can lean on his strength and not ours!
What struggles have you encountered in 2010 and how has God worked through these circumstances to make you grow?
