Slowly Sharpened.

stone

“LIFE is a sharpening stone for GOD.”

I say that

all

the

time

to

people.

It is true.

No matter what the situation.

FOR ME: it ALWAYS helps to remember that GOD uses our LIVES and the circumstances in it for the GOOD of us.

In other words…God knows EXACTLY which proverbial

“button to push”,

and knows the depths of my soul to the point that he KNOWS the traits I need to work on ….so sometimes He even  shows them to me thru my children.

Maybe it is patience I need to work on….so he makes my children SUPER IMPATIENT….so that I have to TEACH them patience.

or

Maybe he puts someone DIRECTLY in my life that “rubs me the wrong way”….just so I have to learn to practice LOVE.

 

These are lessons that I TRY and teach my kids….

because I KNOW from experience, 

THE

SOONER

THEY

LEARN

THIS…

THE

BETTER.

The sooner that we learn that is  life is not just a RANDOM set of circumstances and issues…

the better.

The sooner we SEE that LIFE is a CONSTANT FLOW of lessons and  PERSONALIZED situations….the better.

I believe OUR LIVES are specifically made for each of us by GOD to SHARPEN our souls,

to SLOWLY, over time,

make us

WHO

WE

ARE

MEANT

TO

BE.
