Gifts from God

I was reading a tribute to Sono Harris (who passed away on July 4) by Randy Alcorn.  In it he quotes an email she wrote to encourage him during a difficult season of his life...
"These trials are simultaneously burdens God gives to keep (us) utterly dependent; and thorns which pin back the veil that hides His face.  In a fallen world, they are gifts."  Sono Harris
Think about it.  Our trials are gifts that keep us dependent on God and allow us to see his face.  Wow.

oh, I like this! How I needed to see this. Gonna steal some of this for my facebook status. Going through a little bit of a job mess right now...not good. God is bigger than this and I know that.
