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 ” .. haha .. can’t remember now who wrote it .. but .. it sure has a catchy tune .. and this morning .. it has me thinking on just how .. we look at our troubles so differently .. from the way God looks at them .. no .. 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 friends .. it’s when we learn from them .. while riding them out .. that we see .. the great promise fulfilled .. haha .. that’s right .. we will see .. His glorious reward in the end .. the bottom line .. we simply need to open our eyes and see .. the joy and opportunities through those times of troubles .. for it is then .. we will learn .. there is .. 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 are capable of being .. for our benefit .. and .. for .. His glory .. oh yeah people .. Love Wins Period

“Not only that .. but we also glory in our sufferings .. because we know that suffering produces perseverance .. perseverance .. character .. and character .. hope”
