I want to thank everyone at the Fulton Alliance for your willing, open, and honest participation today. We all learned, we are not alone in our struggles. As you each raised your hand to share a personal loss, you took power away from the enemy. I pray you will continue to “seek His face” as you reflect on some of the areas we touched on today.
“Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.” 1 Peter 4:12-13
Like I said earlier, I am in no means trying to compare my suffering to that of Christ but it is the idea of this “journey” being a “refining process” that gives me hope and keeps me striving to me the best woman of God I can be…for Him. I wouldn’t be who I am today without a little heat, and neither would you. So instead of sadness on our journeys, we need to strive to see the “…glory just around the corner.”
Feel free to post below. I would love to hear how today’s message touched your heart, a thought you had, a reflection, or any comment you would like to share. Your feedback is appreciated and helps to make me the best speaker I can be. Thanks again! Lisa
