This made me wonder if I've been tested deeply? Probably not yet, so far my faith hasn't cost me much in my life. But I hope I can be rooted so much in Christ that when trials do come I can find peace and joy in them.
This is so true! We were not created to live this crazy life. We were created to live perfectly and our first human parents messed that up. We WILL live in the world that we were designed to live in one day.
I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature that I could think of: for to have been born in God's thought, and then made by God is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing.
