Sometimes it feels like God has abandonded us or is punishing us if we are going through a trial or something we don't want to deal with. This is when a higher perspective is very important. God has only our highest good. He wants only for you to move closer to Him and remember the Love that you are. In order to do that, we have to shed false beliefs we have about ourselves and Him. Using terminology of trials or hardships is not the best. They can better be classified as opportunities of Love. When we see them from this perspective, we are able to understand what it is that He is asking us to do, and we are able to move through the "trial" in a much quicker fashion because we no longer resist it.
