I should've seen this one coming. I mean, it's the way God works, isn't it?
I'm reading a book. Hah! I'm reading several, but the one that has my attention at this moment is You Can Still Wear Cute Shoes by Lisa McKay. It's a book of advice for pastors wives. (mini review) Very good and great advice. I should say though, I am at a very rare, but blessed spot to be in. Our church has two older pastors wives who's husbands have retired (or gone on) from the ministry. I'm sure they'd have a thing or two to share! But anyway, check out the book, ladies, if you are needing some advice as your roll as a PW, or laypeople to understand your ministry couple. I digress.
I read a quote that comforts me from my previous post Letting Go.
God will not allow even an ounce of pain if He doesn't intend for it to produce pounds and pounds of cure.
We also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope. (Rom. 5:3-4)My husband has also been taking our church through the life of Joseph and our church is going to see a wonderful play on the life of Joseph tomorrow. We were discussing his recent sermons and the scripture came up:
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.(Gen 50:20)
See I know these things, but I guess I forget. Because I needed another lesson. And this is all so very comforting. It redeems it. Something that hurts my heart so very badly can/could be used to give others hope. Oh Lord let it be so. Please use my hurt to heal.
Just had to share my insight with you. Have a blessed day.
