“We went through fire and through water, but You (LORD) brought us out to rich (abundant) fulfillment. Psalm 66:12
God doesn’t promise that we will not go through trials (fire & water), but He does promise to bring us out of those trials into a place of rich fulfillment. It seems we can learn things in trials that we could learn no other way. When I go through trials and difficulties and circumstances totally out of my control, my grip on the things of this world is loosened and I hold more tightly to Him. I get my focus off of my circumstances and temporal things and onto Him and things that will last for eternity. Thank for for the trials, and for bringing us through them to that place of “rich fulfillment.” -darla
