God is in the business of rewarding those who diligently seek Him! The pain we experience on earth is a powerful testimony to the fact that God loves us too much to leave us in the rough, unfinished shape that we are in.
He will take away the things that make us feel secure so that our faith in Him will grow. And as it does, we will discover that He is all we truly need.
I am so grateful that God has not given me what I wanted so I can say with conviction, "His grace is sufficient!"
