When you look back over your life, where do you see the mostgrowth?
Have you endured trials that have stretched you and taught you new truths about God and His character?
Can you think of a time from your past where it seemed as though God was not in control?
Maybe your in in the STORM right now... Are you learning anything about yourself?
I can remember nights where I was all alone and I was literally screaming at God and asking Him where He was and how He could be allowing the things happening in my life to take place if He really loved me. I can still remember my words and the way that I felt towards Him.
He was so close to me but I couldn't see what He could see. He saw into my future and I just had to trust Him while my heart and my life lay in ruins.
Hold on tight friends, close your eyes and give Him your heart and hand. Greener pastures will come.
There will be a new you on the other side.
