<Weekly Reflection-Prayer Poetry>
Tests are never wasted. God never says, “Oops made a mistake on that one. I shouldn’t have given you that. I meant that for Frank. “Sorry, Bob.” It’s as if the Lord has our name on specific trials. They are specifically designed for us, arranged with our weaknesses and our immaturity in mind. He bears down and doesn’t let up. And we groan and we hurt and we weep and we pray and we grow and we learn. Through it all we learn. Through it all we learn to depend upon His Word…
The common response to trials is resistance, if not outright resentment. How much better that we open the doors of our hearts and welcome the God-ordained trials s honored guests for the good they do in our lives.
~ Charles R. Swindoll
God help us to remember the spiritual growth,
is like a physical growth.
We must start small, take one day at a time,
with an open heart and to never stop climb.
I know I can do this by depending on You,
Seeking answers through prayers , things I must do.
Help me to see each day as a building block
To learn and grow, to let this frozen heart unlock.
