There are many things often that take place in our lives on this earth that we do not understand. These hard times are often things that God uses to bring us as His children closer to Him and also so that others around us that are lost may come to Him. Think of Job and all the trials that He went through and He had done nothing wrong at all. It was simply by God allowing these things to take place that all this was coming to pass. He said in the midst of all this in Job 13:15 “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.” Sometimes we will suffer through hard things but in those times remember that God is still with us as He said in Heb. 13:15 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
