The fact that trials are a part of life is not a new concept. Troubled times are simply part of the proofing process that develops God's people into mature Christians (James 1:2, Romans 5:3-4). God did not leave His people out there to be tossed to and fro in the rough waters of adversity. The greatest way to navigate through your season of trouble is by activating your faith. Speaking the Word of God over your situation and maintaining the right attitude will determine how long you will endure stormy seasons.
