In Psalm 119, verses 67, 71, and 75, the Psalmist says,"Before I was afflicted, I went astray, but now I keep your word. It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I may learn your statutes. I know, oh Lord, that your judgments are right, and that in faithfulness you have afflicted me."
I can speak for my heart. If everything had gone smoothly, I might not be a believer today. However, God's mercy allowed what needed to come into my life to bring me to Him and to keep me in Him. The same goes for you.
Something will come into our lives where we know we cannot make it without the grace of God. Our reflection makes us aware of our need for grace. Remember that God's carrying power will keep you amid your storm, no matter what you go through or are going through today. Talk to Him about it.
It's time to pray.
