Do you agree? We are all guilty of comparing ourselves with others and coveting their strong attributes. If you believe that God makes no mistakes, then that includes you. You were made with a divine purpose in mind.
As much as we want to hide our weaknesses, they are there to build our character. 'Men with good intentions make promises, but men with good character keep them.'
Romans 5:3-5 "Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us. "
I know personally that I would not be who I am today without my present and past sufferings. 'Character cannot be developed in quiet and ease. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired and success achieved.'-Helen Keller
What's one man's junk is another man's treasure but to God we are all his precious treasures.
