Do you ever wonder why when we are walking with God and growing in our faith we face such trials? Why me, you may ask? When God answers....you are perfectly made in my image!
Trials: Designed by God to help us grow to be more like Him.
When we are going through trials we need to remember that God uses everything for good. Even in the middle of the trial when we are asking ourselves why me!? When what we should be doing is drawing closer to Him and asking how to use this trial to teach others. When we are chosen by God to go through these trials we need to think of as being placed in a new position to serve. When we get promoted to a new position at work its because we are ready and prepared for the challenge to make a difference with the other employees or the division we are working in. Its the same in life. Treat your trials as God calling you to a higher position. People are watching you, and you will be given a different type of strength that others don't have during your trial so you can be the one that shines His awesome Glory. In result of that you impact the people around you. This life is very short, we need to welcome trials because it lets us know that God is always working within our lives to bring us closer to home. "Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him." James 1:12
