Lessons Learned

I recently read a blog post by a woman that I read often and  enjoy and learn from her insight.
She has a new book coming out that I am excited to read.

But, this most recent post left me a bit puzzled.

Her point  was that not everything in life has a lesson.
Sometimes we just go through things because the Lord wants us to.

Now, I could be wrong-after all she's a published author and I'm a soccer mom-but I don't believe that to be true.
While I do believe the Lord can do whatever He wants, I also believe that He never wastes a hurt.

Every trail or difficult thing I've ever gone through has taught me something.

Maybe I couldn't or didn't see it at the exact moment, but to sure the Lord  has never had me walk through something for nothing.

Even if what I learned was - I am not in charge.
Or, Lean on Jesus, He is the only one strong enough to carry me through.

The Lord does not waste an emotion, a struggle, a journey for us to learn NOTHING. If He did that would just be mean and pointless and that is NOT who God is.

Whatever spot of life you're in right now that you can't see your way out of just know He's walking right beside you.

Sometimes, that's the best lesson of all.

I certainly have to agree with you. We may not know His purpose but it was always there...just as He is always there.
