It sure feels like we’ve been under attack these past couple of weeks. From my Grandpa Jack passing away, hospital stays, to new tires, dwindling savings, to my son swallowing somthing potentially dangerous I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. I asked for prayer last night on my personal Facebook page and my freinds showered me. I woke this morning with a fresh perspective, one that I hope I can keep with me for more than a few hours. That’s the key isn’t it? Reminding yourself of the peace that the Lord gave and not allowing it to dissapear. It’s a choice I believe.
Anyhow, I’m writing this because I don’t believe our trials are meant for us to endure alone. I believe there is a reason and purpose that we experience what we do in life and it’s rarely for ourselves – it’s for someone else. It’s so we can be used by the King. This morning I’m reminded of the many fires we’ve gone through – the Refiner’s Fire. It appears it’s time for another “Refiner’s Fire”. It did seem like it had been quite some time and sadly, when that happens we start to depend on ourselves and less on God. I remember from the last time it was HOT but He is a Master at what He does and only beauty can come from His work.
So today if you’re in the fire, you’re not alone. I’m thinking and praying for you as well.
You know what I love about TFF? It’s a space where I can share deals and what I’m passionate about – saving money. But, it’s also a place where I can share what’s on my heart. Thank you for allowing me to be real from time to time here.
