Trials of Testing

James 1:12 
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, 
having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life 
that the Lord has promised to those who love him.
 Consider that our trials are merely tests for those who believe. While I don't believe that God brings things on us, I do believe that He allows them. So we can look at them as allowed testing. Those things are molding us and making us into something that God can better use for His purpose. So instead of asking "Why Me Lord?" Why not better seek Him and what purpose is this is going to accomplish in my life and for the lives of the people around me that He places in my path. I don't believe in chance or luck, I believe in an omnipotent God who is in control of all things. When we asked Him to be our Lord, we gave Him the authority to do His will in our lives. The bible says "You are not your own; you were bought at a price." So when you go through it, Thank God for it, though He didn't cause it He allowed it for a reason. Stand up and say "I've got this, or better yet God has got this" The reason is He isnt finished with you! Stay Blessed, PJ
