Sea Glass Musing
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our lives with his love. (Romans 5: 3-5 NLT)
These verses tell us that God loves us and has a purpose in our trials. Even if there is not a quick easy solution, God is with us in those trials.
Be truly glad. There is a wonderful joy ahead, even though you have to endure many trials for a while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold… so when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the world. (I Peter 1: 6-10 NLT)
My prayer for you today is that you will remember that God loves you and is making you into beautiful sea glass. Right now your edges may feel sharp, but he is the master polisher. As you endure remember you are not alone in the waves, He with you.
Let me know in the comments if there is any way I can pray for you.
