Afflictions are opportunities
for God to demonstrate
HIS sustaining grace
HIS work in our lives.
We all go through all sorts of afflictions in this world.
We can allow them to either break us or lift us up.
The choice is ours. If we choose God's way,
our afflictions can lead us closer to HIM.
Dear God, I thank you and praise you
...for working out all the situations in my life
including my afflictions.
...for using my afflictions to lead me closer to YOU
and to glorify YOU.
...for always guiding me to chose the better path
...and for sending angel friends through that path
reminding me that I need these afflictions
so I will not rely on my own self
and to always come to YOU.
