Excellent post, Karen! I sometimes think about this too & looking at the "bad things" in this light defintely puts things into perspective!

(Oh, on a side note...the journaling is getting there!! I'm up to this past October - not too bad!! lol!)

I have been hit over the head today three times with this thought. So, I guess God needs me to take it to heart. Yes, He uses those bad, rough, unseen things to draw me closer to Him. It's just so hard to see that when you are in the middle of it all. Blessings sweet friend.

Oh my Gosh. God is working on me right now through a few trials. Putting me in a place where ALL my faith is in Him, and I have no control what so ever. It's so scary to not have any control, but also comforting knowing that through these trials I will be closer to my Father in Heaven and more like Him.

Patricia - Getting things into perspective is always a GOOD thing.
Yay for your journaling progress!

Alene - Ahhhh. Don't you love it when God is caring and persistent like that??? I pray you will find peace "in the middle of it", as you trust in Him.

Jodi - In the end, I think it's a good thing we don't have control. Because GOD is the One who sees, and who has perfect wisdom. What a mess we would make of things if we were in control. *sigh*

oh thank you, thank you, thank you...God is speaking to me in so many ways and this post is one of them...(I don't know if you remember or not but I asked you to pray for me the other day on Facebook) he is drawing me closer to him and I am loving it. I didn't look at the trials as that. It is hard to see when you are in the middle of all of it and it hurts. I am so thankful that God is speaking to me and helping me and when I trust him...there he is and it is soo much better to go through these things with Him.

Betty-Jo - Yes, it is hard to see when you're in the middle of it. Still praying for you, my friend!
