during trials…

God’s Word says we are to count it all joy! Imagine! How in the world can we do that?! Easy! (not!!) No, really, the only way is to see the trial we’re experiencing through God’s eyes. See it as an opportunity to trust God yet more. To let Him have one more inch of our crummy flesh. To understand that He will use the trial for our good and His glory if we will but let Him. To learn patience. To learn to praise Him even when it makes no sense. To learn to walk by faith and not by sight. To learn to say no to the devil. Shall I go on? There are heaps of benefits for us when we learn to embrace trials not as our enemy, but as our friend. No need to fret! God is good & He is in control! Believe it! Believe Him! And learn to praise Him in the storm. Because He will cause the light to shine out of the darkness once again…

Out of the darkness

This mornings devotional was about how God has brought us (if we are a believer) out of the darkness and caused us to walk in His Light, later I was looking at one of my poetry books and this poem jumped out at me:

LIGHT SHINING OUT OF DARKNESS ~ William Cowper

God moves in a mysterious way,

His wonders to perform;

He plants His footsteps in the sea,

And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines

Of never failing skill,

He treasures up His bright designs,

And works His sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints fresh courage take;

The clouds ye so much dread

Are big with mercy, and shall break

In blessings on your head.

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,

But trust Him for His grace;

Behind a frowning providence,

He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast,

Unfolding every hour:

The bud may have a bitter taste,

But sweet will be the flower.

Blind unbelief is sure to err,

And scan His work in vain;

God is His own interpreter,

And He will make it plain.
