Scripture Sunday!

This morning as I was sitting in church the minister started talking about a particular bible verse that is important to me 1 Peter 1:6-7 which says 6"In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 7These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed." Whenever I am having a rough go of it, and I am like "why God" I always come back to this verse and it gives me a sense of peace......well a little bit into the sermon the minister talked of another verse 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 which says "3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." Ok, I totally love this verse! I am always saying that I am an open book, alot of people I know are private people...I am just not that way. I have been though some things in my life(some of which I won't mention, cause you don't have 5 days to read this blog..) but things like infertility problems, miscarriage, twins, and having a child with a disability...they have been rough but I'm still standing. I believe that this is all due to my incredible faith and love for God. And I am always thinking that maybe something I have gone though, someone else may be going through, and I can help them! So this morning was a wonderful morning to be sitting in that service!

Is there anyone that you know of going through something you yourself have gone though? Maybe you can comfort them through the comfort we get through HIM
