Love of God

 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we exult in hope of the glory of God.  And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.  Romans 5:1-5

Trials and troubles don't care who you are and they are going to come your way.  We don't have to go out looking for them because they will find us and when they do we need to give them to God.  But we must take it one step further and leave them there.  Lean on God's strength to bring you through.  Don't let other see that they can push your buttons.  When someone offends you, turn the other cheek and pray for them.  Easy to do, absolutely not!  Give thanks to God in all things.  His love will bring you through whatever befalls you and you will be a stronger and better person.  Let the love of God's glory shine through you!
