It really is for your good.

It may not seem like it at the time but it the storm that causes you to press in and not give up. Every thing that has been against you has caused you to pray more, praise often, give faithfully and speak truthfully.
Hebrews 12:6 (NIV) because the LORD disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son. Hebrews 12:11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. This is not just a cute cliche but the truth is YOUR test produces a testimony. Out of your mess comes a message.
In your storm Trust God. In your storm Love God. In your storm Hold Tight to God.
Romans 8:17-18 (NCV) If we are God's children, we will receive blessings from God together with Christ. But we must suffer as Christ suffered so that we will have glory as Christ has glory. The sufferings we have now are nothing compared to the great glory that will shown to us. In Jesus Name Be Blessed, Manie
