EVEN NOW, I SEE BEAUTY IN ME

Nothing is expedient with Christ.  Nor is it easy.  But He never promised us expedient nor easy.  He did promise, however, faith and hope in times of turbulence, joy in longsuffering, success for those that daily do His Word and salvation for those that endure.  This is the beauty I see in me.

I’m always looking for a way to make it easier, but at the end of the day and just like when you want to lose weight, there is no easy way out. You have to want it and work on it every day. There are a few exercises that a strong person must do daily: EMBRACE YOUR TRIALS, that’s right, these are your times to actually shine!  Learn from your errors, your tears, your hard times.  They are your tests.  How else can you gage how strong you really are if you don’t have a trial to test it out?  “But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as...
