Bring It

i may differ than most when i say trials are welcomed in my life. here’s why, i know the Lord is doing a work in me when they occur and He’s molding me into more of the woman He’s designed me to be. more times than i’d like to admit, i fail but that’s exactly how we learn! i like to believe, He is “trial-ing” me because He thinks i’m ready. and if i fail, it just means i’ve got more to learn!

thank you Lord for picking on me!

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
James‬ ‭1:2‬

always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians‬ ‭5:20‬

I’ve Got This!

certain lessons you have to learn on your own. in fact, most lessons fall under this category. as a parent, it’s tough because all you really want to do is protect your children from this big bad world. as the adult learning a new lesson … it can be quite disconcerting. especially when it comes on the heels of advice (very wise advice I might add) from dear friends who have actually walked what you’re walking.
not unlike a child who slams their finger in a drawer after being told repeatedly not to play with it, lessons learned in this manner tend to hurt. but better yet, they stick with you. some things just need to be experienced before they hit home!
I thank my God for placing wisdom filled individuals into my life and for His protection and correction when He sees fit!

Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭19:20‬ ‭ESV‬‬
