You’re not sorry for things you say
Words like daggers, you curse my name
You’re not sorry for things you do
The pain you cause – I’m black and blue.
Does hell exist? You’re the proof!
For, I know Satan because of you.
So, I am grateful our paths have crossed
My faith increased – God has not lost!
Sometimes, it can be very difficult to discover God’s blessings within trials and tribulations, especially while we’re still in the midst of them. Perhaps the greatest blessing that can ever occur though, is when we choose to allow our hardships to bring us closer to God. My sincerest hope is that instead of blaming God for our pain and suffering, we will learn to trust Him with it.
God is not to blame for our pain, but Satan is, and he hopes we will allow it to separate us from our Father during times of tribulation. Knowing we have the ability to make this ‘choice’ with every single struggle we face, can give us comfort and help ease the pain.
When the battles of life bring us closer to God, we win the fight (regardless of having anything more to show for it) and the victory is ours, proving God has not lost!
