COULD TROUBLE BE A GIFT?
Monday thought... what if, much that is going 'wrong' in life right now is actually a gift in some crazy way: turning us toward the only One we can truly rely upon? ~ While our natural tendency is to yearn for a trouble-free life, God gives us what we actually need: moments between the blessings, where we feel out of control so we remember to call out to Him. ~ It's a cause-and-effect thing that only works well when we allow troubles to bounce us into His embrace. ~ Are you bouncing well? ~ Or burrowing down, assuming YOU must be enough, have enough, get enough to get by? ~ Christian Author, S. Young, writes, "Instead of waiting for a problem-free life, rejoice that trouble can highlight your awareness of Jesus' presence. In the darkness of adversity, you're able to see more clearly the radiance His Face. Accept the VALUE of problems in this life, considering them pure joy. For you have an eternity of trouble-free living waiting for you in heaven." ~ Bounce well, growing your reliance and dependence on your unchanging God. He's ready to catch you, and fill you with His peace. ~ Isaiah 41:10 ~
