See, before storms in life present itself to us we have an idea of what we are made of. But when the storm comes, we cannot imagine who we may become. We may rely on people to approve, accept, and acknowledge us believing this is what we need to become who we will be. However, none of it is necessary.
When going through the trial and our faith is tested, we learn about ourselves. God shows us who he is. We may never understand the season we’re in but we learn of God’s power and sovereignty while in it. He is preparing us for what he already knows; our future. He’s pruning, refining, shaping us for what’s to come. Be grateful.
Adversity reveals character. Trials make us stronger. Thank God for the trials and the people who left you. Everybody can’t go with you. No matter what season you may find yourself in, God is all you need. He approves of you. Believe.
Be blessed! – JD
