Hey Girls!

As I mentioned in my last post I'm going to be talking about how through our trials and our pains, God makes us strong.

My pastor preached on this a couple Sundays back and I was so amazed because that was exactly what I was going to post about!:)

Recently a boy I knew committed suicide. His death affected a lot of people, including me. However, even though his family and friends are walking through pain right now, God is going to use it to make them stronger. Who knows? Maybe he is using this time in their lives to show how big and great he is.

All I know is that we have a amazing God and he is there for us throughout whatever trials we walk through.

These verses really do most of the talking:

Romans 5:3-5 (New International Version)
3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.

James 1:2-4 (New International Version)

Trials and Temptations
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

1 Peter 1:6-7 (New International Version)
6 In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7 These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.

Your sister in Christ,
