To Change Us


Photo: #TrustHim #GrindHardPrayHarder Whoa!


 Instead of saying He put us in the situations- I'd come closer to saying ~ He allows the things to come into our lives. And we are the ones that have the choice to make, will it make us better or bitter? It all depends on how we decide to respond. Will we allow it to draw us into a deeper relationship with Jesus or will we grow bitter and resentful?

A good friend mentioned this great though to consider, "Just like Pharaoh--he chose to harden his heart--but he could instead have chosen to let his heart melt from God's power and love."

The Bible is full of examples of people who allowed the trials of life to draw them closer to God. May we spend time in the Bible studying about these men and women who allowed the trials of life to draw them into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.



"It is very easy for us to speak and theorize about faith,
but God often casts us into crucibles to try our gold,
and to separate it from the dross and alloy.
 Oh, happy are we if the hurricanes that ripple life's unquiet sea
 have the effect of making Jesus more precious.
 Better the store with Christ than smooth waters without Him."
Macduff
