Just some thoughts

"Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, the vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. It is in our most trying times that our real character is shaped and revealed."
This is a quote by Helen Keller, and when I read it today it made me realize I was better for all I have gone through as of late, though I do not understand it at all yet, and the change is hard to deal with, I feel I have become a better person, via forgiveness both given to those who hurt me and from my heavenly Father.
Now I await the next step God has for me, though I know not what it is or where God will haveme, I know He has us in the Palm of His hand.
He knows the true desires of my heart, and He knows my talents and gifts He wants used.
So it comes to trust and patience and since back surgery is only a week away I have nothing to do but wait.
"Lord use me to the Glory of your will"


  1. Yes, you are right...He holds us in the palm of His hand! I hope the back surgery goes well. God will be right there caring for you.
