Coincidence or Not- I don't think so

This week something kind of neat happened - in fact, it was yesterday. I had been praying for a friend who has been going through some really rough stuff. And not just now but it seems that all of her life she has gone through several different hard trials. So as I am praying - I ask the usual question- of why? And I got a response. It was just clear as can be - If she is not broken - how will she ever know what strength she can have in Me. Just as suddenly a light bulb came on in my mind- and I realized that I, too, was learning this same lesson. I have truly learned over the past couple of years -and especially over the last 7 months- that God is faithful to give me the strength needed for what ever trials come my way if I will just surrender my life and my will to Him and allow Him to work in me. There is a peace that I have not always had. I have noticed situations that have come up which at one time would have caused me much grief, now I am able to work through them much easier - because I am allowing God to guide and direct. I am still a work in progress - it is so nice to see God's hand at work in my life. It was just neat that one day I have one of my heart's cry-of "why?"  answered - and then the very next day - this photo - above - begins to float around Facebook - reminding me not only of the importance of praying for others but also of the way that God had healed just a little bit of me- by helping me understand why, sometimes trials come our way.
