Blog Hop... Encouragement!

Today's Blog Hop is something that you find encouraging... so I have decided to share my life verse from the Bible with you!

Praise 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. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 6If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
2 Corinthians 1:3-7

I find peace in knowing that when I serve the Lord, all of the trials that I endure in my life will be used to serve a greater good. I also draw knowledge and hope from the fact that the Lord suffers right along side of me, and that He can and will use all that I go through for His kingdom and His purpose.

Now don't think I have it all together... or that I LIKE trials! Because I DON'T!!!! I HATE most of the trials that I go through, and I am the furthest thing from "put together" tat you will ever see. But I do know that He can use even silly little me for His greater good!
