The lines to one of my favorite songs, simply sings .. ” trouble you can’t fool me, I see you behind that tree, trouble you can’t fool me,  trying to get the ups on me ”

I can’t remember now who wrote it, however it sure has a catchy tune and for me, Eric Lindell covers it the best.

So yes, with this song stuck in my mind – it has me thinking on just how we look at our troubles so differently from the way God looks at them.  He doesn’t look at our troubles the way we do.

Where we see stress, He sees opportunities. Where we see crisis, He sees growth and betterment.  His sole purpose in times of crisis and trouble is to teach us, His beloved children – precious and mighty lessons.

He uses them to educate and build us up. And yes, it’s when we learn from them, while riding them out, that yes, we see the great promise fulfilled – His glorious reward in the end.

We simply need to open our eyes and see the joy and opportunities through those times of troubles. When we do, we’ll learn there’s a sweet and wonderful joy, we can have there too.  We can learn to make our life joy filled, simply by, seizing the crisis and growing from it.

By actually becoming the person that we’re capable of being, for not only our benefit, but for His glory/

We are loved by love Himself.  He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes .. love wins period

“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us”  Romans 5:3-5
