September 23, Today’s thought – Pop Quiz

new 076Fourth of July Rose

Good Morning

Each day has a pop quiz! And some seasons are like final exams. Brutal, sudden pitfalls of stress, sickness, or sadness. What’s the purpose of the test? James 1:3-4 says, “For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character and ready for anything.”

Test, test, test! This chapter in your life may look like rehab, smell like unemployment, sound like a hospital, but you’re in training. God hasn’t forgotten you, just the opposite. He has chosen to train you. Forget the notion that God doesn’t see your struggle. Quite the contrary. God is fully engaged. He is the Potter, we are the clay. He’s the Shepherd, we’re the sheep. He’s the Teacher, we’re the students. Trust His training. You’ll get through this!

From: You’ll Get Through This – Max Lucado

Through all the test of life – Just Remember

Just get through it . . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie

  1. When things seem “crook” the best plan is as you said “just get through it….today” 🙂

    • ‘crook’ an Australian expression for out of order?
