Thankful Thursday

Visit Laurie@Women Taking A Stand for her post and link up with us.

I'm also thankful for the fire or trials of life. They are hard and difficult,but without that how would we know how good God is? How mighty He is? Of course I am not glad or happy I go through them. I, often times, whine or get angry,but afterwards when I see what God was trying to do,I do thank Him. Going through trials perfects our faith. Trials sharpen us and they purify us. They are never easy,but they are doable. With God you can make it through anything. Like the Casting Crowns song says, I will praise You in the storm. I've been through some storms in my short 28 years. In some of them I did praise Him through the storm and in others, shamefully, I did not praise Him,instead I was angry and hurt. After it was all over, I realized how foolish I was and just how human I was. We are to learn from the mistakes we make and trials help us do that. What are you thankful for?

Share with us and be blessed!


  1. Good point about learning from our mistakes through trials.

    Hope you are having a nice Thursday!

  2. You are so right my friend! It's hard, but trials really do purify us bring us closer to God. Thanks for that great reminder!

    BTW, I love your new look. I don't know how long it's been that way, but I love it!
