Some people would say you must be nuts to think that good will come from bad....from adversity!....IT IS good for us to have trials and troubles at times, for they often remind us that we are on probation and ought not to hope in any worldly thing..... It is good for us sometimes to suffer contradiction, to be misjudged or MISUNDERSTOOD by men or woman even though we do well and mean well..... These things help us to be humble and shield us from vainglory.... When to all outward appearances men give us no credit, when they do not think well of us, then we are more inclined to seek God Who sees our hearts..... Therefore, a man ought to root himself so firmly in God that he will not need the consolations of men. When a man or woman of good will is afflicted, tempted, and tormented by evil thoughts, he or she realizes clearly that their greatest need is God, without Whom he can do no good.... Saddened by their miseries and sufferings, they lament and pray..... He or she wearies of living longer and wishes for death that he or she might be dissolved and be with Christ. ....Then he or she understands fully that perfect security and complete peace cannot be found on earth....But in GOD through JESUS CHRIST my Lord and Savior The other value in my opinion is where you have gone and been led astray you will be able to mentor someone with your knowledge of such adversities and guide them....Hopefully and prayerfully they will listen.....Because I didn't when I was young and it took awhile to climb out of that hell on earth....Thank You Jesus.....Amen "Therefore, a man ought to root himself so firmly in God that he will not need the consolations of men or woman".....Amen!
