Thanks so much for your comment. I have a blog on my profile where I list the blessing of suffering that I have found to be true in my own life. I hope you will check it out and that you will find it helpful to hang in there and persevere.

Just commenting on your first quote here-----ya know, I just realized that last night. I mean, I had learned that before and "known" it, but it really hit me last night. I actually thanked God for my trials!! Because I know He's using them to shape me---it's through trials that I grow! I've been praying for changes in my life, for a let up on the hard times I've been going through, but it hasn't happened. Now I know it's how I handle those things that matters. These trials I'm experiencing may go on and on for a long time, but there is a purpose for every one of them. I think if I remember God and His plan more throughout the difficult times, they won't be so bad to endure, because everything happens for a reason.<br />
Finally! The "head knowledge" becomes "heart knowledge"! Praise the Lord!<br />
Just wanted to share that. =)
