The Right Question

Recently, I was pondering something in my life and questioning the reason behind it.  A light came on in my thinking as rather than asking “Why is this happening” or “When will this end”, I began to wonder “How was I getting blessed by this experience?”  Psalm 112:7 reads, “He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.”  Lessons become blessings when understood and seen through God’s (Love’s) eyes.

Grateful for Lessons

This morning I was reminded by a dear friend of Isaiah 43:2-3 where it states, “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;”.

The cloud is lifting from the imagined hurt of yesterday and the sun is shining.  How very humbled I am to know God is always right here with me, where it may look like a challenge.  Today I will look through God’s eyes and see perfection and harmony everywhere.

Spiritual Growth

Spiritual growth comes from trials and is proof of God’s Love.  It is never punishment, just as we were not being punished by the teacher in school when we were tested, but just making sure we understood what we were studying.

Lessons always become blessings when viewed properly.
