Thank God for my troubles

Believe it or not, the day will come when you'll look back on this seemingly messed up situation and thank
God that it actually happen to you!

Most negative situations that we encounter during the course of our lives, we automatically feel as if God should have intervened and vindicated us from those challenges. In fact it would appear as if he'd left us to be devoured by our enemies. The truth is, because we didn't know the plans of God concerning us at those stages of our lives we erroneously and prematurely judge God foolishly. This explains why we are commanded to give thanks in all things (good and bad); for this is God's will for us in Christ Jesus” 1 Thessalonians 5:18. As a reminder, the will of God does not mean that things will always run smoothly or have a happy ending. Instead, the will of God is just that, his will being fulfilled however he chooses it to be.

Hear the words of wisdom today! Your current non pleasing, disappointing matter has been allowed by God to help and condition you mentally for the wonderful things that's about to unfold in your life.

I speak from a position of experience and life experiences has consistently demonstrated to me that in order to decipher, recognize and appreciate good, it is a must for us to encounter the opposite of good which is BAD!

The bottom line my friend; your seemingly bad experiences are indicators that good is ahead awaiting your arrival, however there is always a conditioning or renewing of the mind prior to arriving at your destiny. The reality is your current way of thinking and handling of matters now are also clear indicators that you're not ready to embrace what's ahead. Just like any good company, it is their desire to train you for the position that they’re positioning you for.

Again! These bad or displeasing occurrences from a spiritual perspective are stepping stones to "BETTER" that's awaiting the completion of your life's lessons. Please, be patient and allow God to be God!
