"There's a Reason"

"There's a Reason"

For every pain that we must bear,
For every burden, every care,
              There's a reason.

For every grief that bows the head,
For every teardrop that is shed,
              There's a reason.

For every hurt, for every plight,
For every lonely pain-racked night,
              There's a reason.

But if we trust God as we should,
It all will work out for our good.
              He knows the reason.

"...We Know that for those who love
God all things work together unto
good..." (Romans VIII 28).

Amen, Sunset. This is so true. I've seen it in my own life. None of us ever want to go through trials and experience pain but if we let God teach us something through it and grow our faith through it then it can mold us into the people that God wants us to be.
I read a book called "As Silver Refined" by Kay Arthur that discusses this. God takes our trials and hardships and uses them to grow us. Our pain is never in vain. Jesus, himself, experienced great pain and suffering while on earth, so he understands probably better than anyone else. That's one of the reasons why I love him so much! We have a Savior who understands!
Thanks for sharing this, Sunset. It was beautiful.

You are welcome April, I too truely believe that this is the case and that through God, we as individuals learn to grow within ourselves, over and over again, it's all part of the process of life, as they say that "life" is not a dress rehearsal, it's real, and it's what's happening now.  In the end, I too believe that God is good, and that he is always there for us and will bring us through everything in life.

Amen, Sharon X
