Later, the truth begins to penetrate. Psalm 138:8 is a passage that I have leaned on for rough patches in my life. I believe that God is working through the difficult times to shape me into the instrument that He wants me to be. Romans 8:28 reinforces that thought. A couple of days ago I shared some thoughts about the Lord being a master teacher, knowing exactly what it takes for each of us to know Him the way He wants us to know Him. That means, if I am to read 1 Peter honestly, suffering at some level for each of us.
I am good with that. For me. It is really hard to watch it play out in the life of one of my kids. It is harder for me to trust God with them than it is for me to trust Him for my life. I have to be reminded that He loves them more than I do.
Still wish I could change things though.
