All week long I have thought that it was Saturday. Every day was my own personal Groundhog day. And look, today really is Groundhog day and yet it’s still not Saturday. Tomorrow is Saturday, what day will I think it is then?
So, imagine my shock when I realized it was time for another Five Minute Friday! I don’t even know. The theme for this week is Agree. If you don’t know the deal about Five Minute Friday, check out one of my blog posts here that talks about it!
Basically, you write for five minutes, only five minutes and don’t worry about it when you are done. Signed, sealed, delivered.
I wasn’t sure what to write about for this weeks prompt. It is such a basic word! But I have been reading Katie Davis Majors’ book Daring to Hope and there has been so much goodness in her words!
Then I came across this quote:
God already knows what we’re made of, but perhaps He wants us to learn what we’re made of. I think we would all agree that we learn more from our tough times than from our easy times. John Bytheway
That is what I have been reading so far in her book. How easy it is to live life when everything is going right.. But how much harder it is when the days start going wrong.
You do learn more about yourself, about God. I know our pastor at our church has said many times that when things are going well…just wait. Just wait. It won’t stay like that, something WILL happen, the other shoe will drop.
That’s when you find out what you are made of. That’s when you come closer to, or back to, God.
So, yes, I do agree that we learn more from our tough times than from our easy times. It just makes sense…
