Greater than Expected

Everything has its purpose. We go through things all the time, some of us go through more than others. Remember in life there are lessons and there are blessings.

Lessons come to strengthen us. We sometimes call them trials and tribulations. We don’t go through lessons because we did something wrong or because God is punishing us. We go through, because there is something we need to learn or be prepared for.


Blessings come because God loves us and wants us to succeed. He isn’t blessing you for a job well done, he is blessing you because he loves you.

I am constantly reminding myself that God isn’t punishing me whenever I go through things. He is preparing me, teaching me. Sometimes the lessons hurt, but the blessing that comes after the lesson is always greater than anything I could ever pray for.
