I think this could definitely be classed as a trial - coping with a broken finger. I don't have any choice in the circumstances but I do have a choice in my attitude!
So, am I going to choose to dwell on the difficulties and how hard it is to manage with my right hand out of action?
Am I going to choose to think about how I am independent and really don't like relying on other people?
Or am I going to choose to be thankful?
Thankful that I am married to a lovely man who is willing and able to help out more than usual.
Thankful for my parents who don't live too far away and are available to help me out.
Thankful that it's only a short term injury and therefore the difficulties this creates are only temporary.
What a great opportunity to put this scripture into practise
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. (James 1:2-4 NKJV)
Not promising I will be successful all the time, but I will try to keep a thankful attitude and not dwell on how hard it is!
