Do you feel like you are being tested. Do the trials seem to never cease? Are you like Paul praying that this "thorn" be removed. Me too. I am reading a book called "You'll Get Through This" by Max Lucado. He says a few things that I would to pass on to you that are helping me with the recent health issues I have had and continue to have.
Satan is always on the prowl seeking whom he may devour. Those things that are "intended evil become ultimate good." and "your test will become your testimony". "Your mess has become your message."
Consider the life of Joseph. In his book, Max said; "Had you asked the angels of heaven about Joseph's location, they would have said 'OH, he is just in boot
Our Lord can take all this "mess" and use it for our good.
Please read: James 1: 3-4 and 2Corinthians 1:3-4 below (KJV in public domain)
James 1:3-4 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort; 4Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
Have a blessed day in the Lord. You WILL get thru this.
