A Reason Why
When you’re in a dark place, you sometimes tend to think you’ve been buried. But you’ve actually been planted. Bloom! (Christine Caine, Australian international speaker)
We’ve all had those times when discouragement overtakes us. Whatever the circumstance, we feel we’re in a slump with no light to guide us. Caine suggests another way to consider the difficult place we’re in. Maybe it’s not so much a trial as an opportunity. We’re where we are at that point for the purpose of growing into a vital, useful agent of value and benefit to others.
The Lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way? (Proverbs 20:24)
