There is a realization that I have been put, “on hold”, not as a punishment from God, but as a gift from Him and as an opportunity to have a more teachable spirit and be taught the deeper mysteries of Him, His Holiness and Character!!!  
There were two things the great Apostle Paul, and certainly not that I am anything near the likes of him, said he would glory in. He said he would glory in the cross of Christ (Galatians 6:14), and he said he would glory in his infirmities (2 Corinthians 11:20).


“…Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,  and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us…” Romans 5:3-5


Notice that the great Apostle did not waste any time naming and defining what was causing the sufferings!!! SO I AM NOT SUPPOSED TO WASTE TIME ASKING GOD QUESTIONS and TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT WHEN I HAVE EMPHATICALLY STATED THAT MY GREAT AND AWESOME GOD HAS THIS, AND HAS HAD IT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING!!! What I am supposed to do is, “…glory in…” Hallelujah!!!

Lord, help me today to, “…glory in…” and leave all the rest to my God who never makes a mistake and is in absolute control of all things in my life!!!

Love, blessings and prayers to each and all,
