What a week it's been! It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... a lot of stuff going on with my oldest son, sister-in-law planning to leave for France, selling the 4Runner, sick children, and the list goes on.
It's hard to believe that some of God's greatest works come from the middle of adversity. He is always by my side. He will never leave me or forsake me. AND... If I seek Him and trust Him... He will make my paths straight. I have spent too many times wondering why things are happening TO me. But, once again God reminds me that these are the very things that make me stronger.
These are the spiritual 'weights' that He uses to make me the person He wants me to be. When I'm saying 'OK Lord, that's enough!', He is right by my side - my spiritual 'trainer' that says 'I think you can handle a little more weight'. So, as I look back at the week and all that it holds I can now look at each lesson and see... it was to help me grow my spiritual 'muscles'. And for that I will always be thankful.
All the time... God is good. :)
