Spiritual growth occurs when you face calamity, suffer loss and choose to meet the challenges of life by making tough decisions which help transform you from the inside out. Many, spend their lives trying to avoid the hardships they encounter in life and then become bitter when things don’t work out the way they expected.
Everyone suffers loss whether it is through the heartbreak of a divorce, the betrayal of a friend, the death of a loved one or their own debilitating illness. But, it is in your worst of times that God reveals His love and grace to you as you learn to depend upon Him for your comfort and hope in life.
We don’t always see the bigger picture and when we are going through the pain,suffering and the hard times in our lives we can become bitter and feel that God has abandoned us.
The truth is, God never leaves us , we are never facing the trials alone. God does see the bigger picture. He has this!! He is already at the end of it. If we allow Him, He will take our hurts, our suffering , our dissolution- ment and turn it into something good, where a hidden jewel can be found. Faith.
