I was thinking about a dear friend I have known for years and how in a relatively short period she had grown seemingly more than in all the years I had known her. Only one thing stood out when it came to this season of her life in which she had so very much blossomed. It was a season of great trials, many tears, much tribulation, incredible struggle, and sheer hardness in her life’s circumstances.
Friend, some of our greatest growth in our relationship with the Lord and in how He is growing us in His image can come in our hardest places amid our greatest struggles.
If you’re in a season of struggle right now, place your heart and life wholly in the loving hands of the Lord and watch what He can do!
“that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ,” 1 Peter 1:7
