“Those who stand firm during testing are blessed. They are tried and true. They will receive the life God has promised to those who love him as their reward.”
James 1:12 CEB
Wow the irony of picking this verse today is unreal. This was my Facebook post about 4 years ago-
“I swear God b like naaaa she too happy son lemme rain on this annoyin girl parade lmaooo He does I swear He does ! #stfo”
A few years ago I was so angry at God..could not understand why things would happen and wanted answers right then and there as to why..I was a pessimist and so tired of things going up and down in my life…never saw the brighter picture in any situation just the dark one. “Tried and true” is an understatement of how I felt ..of course I seeked the Lord for salvation and then was baptized..and for lack of a better phrase..All Hell Broke Loose😩in my life..
It was then I realized that it’s not God I need to be mad at..it wasn’t him trying to take away the blessings he was giving me..It was the enemy..fast forward to present day..I have shifted my mindset from pessimism to optimism and can literally see the light in the dimmest of all situations..although some days are rougher than others I have to remember it’s never the glass half empty..it’s always the glass half full ..#Optimism #Bloop
