Week 2, Day 3
"We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they are good for us- they help us learn to be patient. And patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady." Romans 5:3-4 TLB
We may not be able to shorten the refining process, but we can unknowingly lengthen it. Often times trials and hardships can cause us to be so uncomfortable, we may find ourselves complaining, murmuring, and even coveting others thus leading to disobedience. Gratitude is a powerful form of spiritual warfare which will help us stay the course with the right perspective. Choose today to not just go through the refining process, but grow through it.
