God's hand..just wanna share

Sharing you this thought, hoping that It'll bring you some encouragement as it did on me just this morning. GOD'S HAND Sometimes we must be hurt in order to grow We must (be) fail in order to grow We must lose in order to gain Some lessons are learned best only through pain Sometimes our vision clears Only after our eyes were washed with tears Sometimes we have to be broken So we can be tender Sick so we can rest and think better On things more important than work, fun Trip near death so we can assess how we’ve run Sometimes we have to suffer lack So we know God’s provision Feel another’s pain so we can have sense of mission So take heart my friend if you don’t understand today Instead of grumbling, ask God what He means to say In order to learn you must endure And learn to see the bigger picture In order to grow you must stand That takes what is good and gives what is best And on this blessed thought, rest As your anxious heart with questions waits God’s hand only gives what His loving heart dictates… ...We are subjected to pain and suffering at times and life is never complete without it..But after the storm, we are stronger and we are victorious.

Amen - wonderful message here. I thank the Lord for the trials and tribulations in my life because I know I am growing stronger and wiser from them and will be better prepared for the big battle to come.

..when we are suffering.. or even having a down day, is the best time to be yield, yield, yielding to Him.. It's when we most should be doing so.. as it yields the most benefit.. And because God is Life itself (the great spirit, spark and breath of life) He suffers, lives through and experiences all sufferings which ever occur.. - As to humans, yes it seems as f those who have not suffered can become, well, insufferable! And may lack compassion, etc.. But sooner or later sufferings of one sort or another come to us all, and it is a good thing that it does.. It's also a paradox that we can go around thinking, expecting and wondering when the "ax will fall" - but we don't have to do this.. Especially if we know the Lord, as He has suffered for us.. and carries our sufferings and shortcomings, etc.. and we now have more reason to expect blessings rather than the metaphoric ax to fall.. but humility comes through life's struggles, and is a desireable trait..
