It's All Grace

Amazing things can happen when you allow the Lord to work in your life.

The Finest Gold Is Tried In The Hottest Fire!

on August 19, 2013

My mother would encourage me as a young girl by saying things like, “when you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hold on!”  However, understanding the spiritual side of things as an adult helped me to understand the depth of comments like that and to treasure the little “nuggets of truth” my mother gave me.

When we think of how hard our life is, may we reflect on what God wants to DO instead of questioning  “what HE is DOING”.  Know that God must really love you a lot to give you so much hard stuff to go through and that HE must be preparing you for something really great!  Something down the road that you don’t know is even coming.  Therefore, you would NEVER be prepared for it!  What a wreck!

The finer gold is tried in the hottest fire.  It takes 1400 + degrees to really refine gold and to make it pure.  GOLD is not made on the mountaintop where the breezes blow and roses smell so sweetly, yet IT IS IN the hottest fires that will change and shape your very being for the purpose HE created you to be.

I heard this saying just last night, “Why don’t you intend on being who God intended you to be”?  If you do, then you will accept the trials and the sufferings as nothing short of the Hand of God!

May your life be marked up by God’s fingerprints and may you be able TO SEE each one!  Look closely or you will miss them!  Seek HIM and you shall find HIM!
