Denae. I thought of your last post this morning as I read a devotional by Oswald Chambers, “God gives us a vision, then He has to take us into the valley and put us through fire and floods to batter us into shape until we get to the place where He can trust us wih the veritable reality (of His glory and His vision). Let Him put you on His wheel and whirl you as He likes, and as sure as God is God and you are you, you will turn out exactly in accordance with the vision. Don’t lose heart in the process.” God isn’t just giving you strength to walk through the hard stuff. He is giving you strength to handle His glory, being revealed, through the hard stuff.
