In Other Words Tuesday


"The purpose of Christianity is not to avoid difficulty, but to produce a character adequate to meet it when it comes. It does not make life easy; rather it tries to make us great enough for life."~ James L. Christensen ~ God never promised us that our lives would be carefree, but He did promise to always be there to show us a way through our difficult times. I am grateful for the hard times, they make the easy times, even sweeter. God is refining me as I walk through the fire, He is building my character. I praise Him for the storms in my life, they always make the rainbows more beautiful.

When we travel through the dark valleys, the light seems so much brighter when we come to the other side.

Thanks so much for sharing.

Blessings,
