Ever stop to think that the reason we are placed in what we think are difficult situations, is that we are spared what is happening should we have stayed in the heat of a matter?
Like a pot plant that is taken out of the intense noonday heat and placed lovingly in the shade.
To be renewed and refreshed in the coolness and stillness, out of the draining heat.
We too, go through trials lovingly allowed in order to be renewed and refreshed.
Tears last longer and are powerful in a trial.
Sometimes what becomes of us, the forced rest, a change in direction – any change in us in the heat of the furnace during our sufferings, is actually the remedy for a need that maybe we didn’t even know existed.
Romans 8:28 KJV
