Today while going over my "Praise Break" for the week (which can be found at www.gossipsister.com every Wednesday) I thought of all the disasters that are happening; namely the earthquakes and aftermath in Haiti. Below is the post I did.
Praise Break: A moment in the midpoint of the week just to stop and pay reverence, and seek encouragement to get us through the remainder of the week.
"But He knows the way I take; when He has tested me, I will come forth as gold."
God tests us and put us through certain circumstances for several reasons, but it’s only for His will to be done and for us to be not the same but conformed, molded, better… Even a diamond goes through a lot of pressure in order for it to shine. For a similar view on this topic, visit Miss Gossip’s blog here.
My heart goes out to those directly affected by the tragedy in Haiti. I know some people may question God and wonder how could something so bad happen to His children; how could He allow such disasters to take place. My stand on this topic is that adversity comes to make us stronger and to bring us closer to our creator. We forget that God has a purpose for everything; it may hurt and abiding by His will may be tough, but it's a must-do. God won't bring us to something that He can't see us through. Hold tight to your faith and know there's a purpose for your struggle; be encouraged.
May God bless you & keep you
Make 2010 a Perfect '10!
