There’s been a refrain from an old Cristian tune in m head the last few weeks- pretty catchy:
“Don’t you fret now child- don’t you worry….. the rain’s to help you grow, so don’t try to hurry the storm along…. the hard times make you strong”
So much easier said (or sung) than done!! If we could learn to rest and relax in our trials, oh how different life would be. Lord, help us to rejoice in our trials- teach us how to embrace our troubled times, knowing You are there.
