“What seems to us bitter trials are often blessings in disguise.” – Oscar Wilde
This week’s list are trials that have made me better. Here are a few of the hard places in my life that made me better.
A time of childhood that led to the trial of becoming a woman.
A time of motherhood that led to a trial of becoming a grandmother to five beautiful grandchildren.
A time of weight-gain journey to weight-loss success — this journey celebrating four years of 112 pound weight loss.
A time of facing the fear of failing and returning to school — this trial gave me a career in the field of nursing.
A time of deep depression, a trial with illness, vice-gripping migraines, all creating a choice to get up and put one foot in front of the other.
“Put one foot in front of the other and keep going.” – Diana Rockwell
A time when I accepted Christ and then a time of renewal and accepting redemption. God is good and He is good all the time. Following Christ has made me better whether I am wearing my hat as mom, grandma, wife, or nurse. Jesus knows who I am, where I am, and what is best for me. He lovingly declares that I am his beloved and he is mine. His banner over me is LOVE.
