“Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us; he has struck us down, and he will bind us up”
Sometimes we need to be torn down to be built back up. God uses certain situations in our lives to do some much needed work. At the time, it may feel like punishment, but the results will be a deeper faith and a servant much more equipped to handle the work required of him or her. Never forget that God is good and He will never give you more than you can handle.
Lord, thank you for taking the time and effort to shape me into a more capable vessel to serve you.
