Hi Family and friends....
Read this beautiful quote once...
"If you desire to Blossom like a rose in a garden. You have to learn the art of adjusting with the thorns."
How true this is, each of us desire to blossom like the rose but find it difficult to face hard and tough situations in life.
Even Our Lord Jesus refines us like Silver.
"For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver."
When God allows us to pass through testing times we should know we'll come out stronger and better.
"See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction."
Daniel 11: 35,
"Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.
"He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver."
1 Peter 1:7
These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
Let's learn to face the trials of life that seem to be like thorns. Then we too will blossom like a beautiful rose.
We need to learn to cope with pain, rejection, misunderstanding, loss, death etc.
When we faithfully endure, in due season God will help us bloom.
May Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus be Multiplied on each of you.
