A universal truth is that adversity makes you into a better person. We are refined through fire by going through the pain and endeavors of our life where we need to take a heroic stance. It is through these trials that we can wash away the insignificant parts of our lives and make our faith stronger and brighter.
This helps us mirror the divine image present within our soul. All of this helps us to walk the road alongside God. We respond more to the divine voice that comes from within us at times of agony and affliction than we do in the “supposed” times of relief. For us to listen to our inner lives we need to encompass ourselves with humility.
The refining process may seem hard and cruel to you but this is what brings about the change in you and your life. The process is what God uses to refine our soul and fill it with faith, strength, and usefulness.
The imitation pieces among us may get lost during this period of being refined through fire and lose their faith in God but the genuine stones among us and those with the true perspective will come through it and sparkle as they should.
The men’s ministry at House of Mercy Christian Assembly is on a mission to help Christian men connect with Jesus Christ so that they may understand their true purpose in life and lead their families in a way that God has willed.
The trials in your life are God’s way of asking you to show patience. Showing patience in this time of adversity will only help us grow and work our way towards achieving eternal solace.
We use patience to overcome the challenges and make use of the opportunity in this period of trial. Being patient helps us to develop a deeper understanding of God’s will and the purpose He wants us to serve. The following scripture pens this perfectly.
“Be patient in afflictions, for thou shalt have many; but endure them, for lo, I am with thee, even unto the end of thy days,” Doctrine and Covenants 24:8.
This tells men to be patient in times of adversity and endure them till they last as God’s help is with us till the very end, and the trials in our lives are a part of God’s will.
