Treasure Hunt for Troubled Times

Treasure Hunt for Troubled Times

I saw a cute cartoon the other day with an illustration of a frazzled woman, and the words next to her said, "I'm ready for some blessings that aren't in disguise."

It made me chuckle because I've felt that way many times. So often, the Lord uses trials, struggles, and afflictions to teach me important lessons that I couldn't have learned otherwise and to bless me in ways I couldn't appreciate otherwise.

Are you walking through hard times right now? Are you bombarded by temptations? Weary from croaking out the same prayer year after year? Facing serious consequences for doing the right thing?

Spread the Good Word & Trivia Answers

Today's Good Word comes from Sister Karen Watford. Here's why she loves Psalm 30:5.

God has His reasons for weeping and for joy — all of which serve a greater purpose. Through our times of weeping, we can learn the greatest lessons, become more humble, and grow closer to God because we realize our smallness before the Lord. Without joy, we lose hope and feel lost. When we feel joy, we wish to share it with everyone and especially with our Father in appreciation of His goodness. When I am in the midst of trouble, I take comfort in the fact that I will learn something good for my soul and that it won't last forever ... because God promised that the morning and joy will come and, oh, how sweet they are!
