My favorite verse of all times,
1 Thessalonians 5:18 "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
This verse reminds me that God is always in control, both, in good and bad times. He allows certain things to happen in our lives so that we may be refined and strengthened for greater troubles to come. I haven't had the best 3weeks or so but experience has taught me to be content with where God has placed me. Over the years I have asked God to help me use whatever situation in my life to get closer to Him. It's not easy but we have every reason to trust fully in God because he is the ONLY one who can declare the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10). The best thing about trusting God is that we are assured that no matter how hopeless a situation may appear, the end result is always for our good and for His glory.
Oh, how I love you, JESUS! :)))
