Blessings Come Through Raindrops

Sometimes we don't understand life- I know I don't. When life throws us curve balls we usually don't know how to react. Often, we get angry at God, "Why this God?" "Are you just out to get me?" "Where are you?". Maybe someone you loved passed away, maybe you are lonely, maybe your best friend ditched you, maybe you made bad grades this school year, maybe you had a really bad day. Whatever problems you have, you know how hard it can be to understand why your trial is happening.
Bad things happen. There is no way of getting around it. We live in a fallen world and nothing is perfect. However, no matter how hard things get, God is in control. Even though you don't understand it, God is working everything together for a specific purpose. Why is he letting this happen? Because he loves you and is making you stronger. My new favorite song is called Blessings by Laura Story. Honestly, this song sums up everything I'm trying to say.

The chorus goes like this:
"What if your blessings come through raindrops? What if your healing comes through tears? What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know you're near? What if trials of this life are your mercies in disguise?"
God sometimes has mercies in disguise" planned in our life that we won't understand until much later on in life. Through every trial, every struggle, Jesus will be here for you. He loves you so much and is making you an even stronger witness for his name.

James 1:2-4 (New International Version 1984)

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

Your sister in Christ,
