''Only as we face one faith-stretching challenge after another and experience God’s faithfulness will we learn to depend on Him instead of ourselves.'' from intouch.org
Are you grateful for both the good and bad times in your life? We are supposed to be but it is tough. The quote above answers the question, 'why is this happening,' rather well. The trust we learn from trials helps us when the next one comes. Trust should be an additive quality but we often deduct from it with our arrogant hearts. If we would only humble ourselves, we would realize how weak we really are. Our lives are about so much more than our desires but about His will for us. Depending on the Lord is your greatest strength.
