Ever wondered why we all have to experience sadness and pain even when though God is on our side?
I think this question is answered well by the following which I came across on Twitter a few months ago:
God is more concerned about our character than our comfort. His goal is not to pamper us physically but to perfect us spiritually!
It’s true you know, all the situations we find ourselves having to deal with in our lives, help us to grow in our spiritual experience, and, as it says in the above quote, help build our character.
I simply pray that all the situations I have to deal with in my life, are helping to build my character, into someone like Christ, how about you?
