Refined by fire

We are always on the anvil; by trials God is shaping us for higher things.
Henry Ward Beecher

We weren’t promised a rose garden. We were promised that God would never leave us. Having a life free of problems may not be the thing that makes us beautiful in God’s eyes. The Bible reminds us that pottery is put into the flame to make it beautiful. In times of trial turn to God and come out of the trial refined by him.

Prayer: Ever present God, go with us into the flame and bring us out made beautiful for you. Amen

  1. I would trade not one good thing, to not experience a
    hundred of the bad from my past.
    My scars, they all have their own, a wise story to tell…
    for others to learn avoiding the worst…
    When there could have been…no scars..nor. story to tell.
