Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine,
according to his power that is at work within us,
Her diet consisting only of rice.
And sometimes he does.
He is good either way.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Our desire is to serve; to seek and be changed.
He uses the circumstances in our lives to mold and shape us.
To encourage others along this journey.
We may not like all we go through.
The way hard.
It is all for His glory.
Many of us have never had to suffer.
We have had much at our disposal. We lack for little.
So when hard times come we shout how unfair it is.
All the while our character is being shaped and likened unto the Father.
We have been told there will be trials.
We have been told how we should respond.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,
because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
