So often I've heard this saying, that God cares more about my character than my comfort. I say it myself, and in all reality, i actually believe it! It's not that God doesn't ever want us to be comfortable, but He's simply more aware of the fact that the things that will shape our character happen to be the things that sharpen us…I can't imagine any tool that needs to be sharpened thoroughly enjoying that process-right?
But honestly, in moments like the present I just kinda wish God didn't care so much. Well, deep down I don't wish that, but on the surface I pretty much do. There's about a million things that are uncomfortable right now…a couple relationships, my job (hopefully this will change?), some uncertainties, some tensions I don't feel like dealing with…they're all JUST HARD! Plus, it's the end of the school year and there's a ton of stress that dwells in the last couple weeks of school.
So, I think I need someone to remind me again…why does God care more about my character than my comfort? Oh, right…because He wants me to continue to grow. Does it all have to come at one time though? :-) Seriously…Well, Father knows best. I choose to trust Him.
On a completely different note…Barak anyone?

Someone wise was just saying the other day that when God brings us through personal discomfort and stretching it might be because he’s preparing us to lead others in that area later.
Barak really scares me. I’m not taking this news well. I would feel safer with Hillary…
We are all being refined by the fire! Thankfully you did make it through the final days of school and now you can begin to enjoy some “off” time!
I can’t believe I’m saying this but I would have chosen Hillary over Barack as well!
