WHY ISN'T LIFE EASIER?!
Ever find yourself wondering and grumbling... 'When will life get easier!?' ~ Me too! I can think of nothing better than a life of consistent comfort, with no huge struggles and losses. ~ But God has other ideas for us. Like a wise parent, He knows that all-day good doesn't bring any growth. If we had it easy, we wouldn't learn through our pain. ~ The result: a lot of spoiled children in grown-up bodies. Emotionally stunted by an easy life, mature on the outside but with all the fluctuations and immaturity from childhood, inside. That wouldn't be good parenting, now would it? ~ Theologian, Oswald Chambers, writes: "God is our Master Designer, He allows adversities into your life to see if you can jump over them properly. Do not think it strange to be in a fiery trial, as though something unusual happened to you. Rise to the occasion, do what the trial demands of you. It does not matter how much it hurts, as long as you give God the opportunity to manifest the life of Jesus in you." ~
