Trials Turned To Gold

Earlier this evening I shared my "story" of the past four years with a man who has faced his own tragedies. As I talked with him, I thought about what I knew of his story. Like myself and so many others, he has been walking with God in the desert and yet his face radiated with such joy! What a testimony he is to the love, faithfulness and power of God. The fiery sands of the desert have not destroyed him. They have only driven him closer to God and have caused him to extend his hand toward others out there on the burning sand.

About 30 years ago, I heard a song which would burn in my heart. It was written by Keith Green and is entitled, "Trials Turned To Gold"

He's brought me here, where things are clear
And trials turn to gold
He shared with me, His victory
He won in days of old

Oh Lord, I don't deserve
The riches of your word
But You've changed my filthy rags
To linen white as snow

The view from here is nothing near
To what it is for You
I tried to see Your plan for me
But I only acted like I knew

Oh Lord forgive the times
I tried to read your mind
Cause you said if I'd be still
Then I would hear your voice

My Lord, my King, my urge to sing
And praise the things above
No words can say the glorious way
You changed me with your love

He's brought me low, so I could know
The way to reach the heights
To forsake my dreams, my self esteem
And give up all my rights

With each one that I lay down
A jewel's placed in my crown
Cause His love, the things above
Is all we'll ever need

He's brought me here, where things are clear
And trials turn to gold

Are you taking your trials and lifting them up to God so that He can transform them into gold? Are you sharing what you have learned out there in the "desert" with others as a means of helping them on their own journey?

Gather up all the trials in your life, offer them up to God and allow Him to turn them to gold.

You O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. Ps. 18:28
