Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Most of us learn during the hard times, not when we are on easy street.

...He learned obedience from what he suffered and once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him...
                                       --Hebrews 5:8,9 TNIV
Even Jesus went to school during suffering.  To be sure, we are not Jesus, but the principle still rings true; hard knocks often provide us the best teaching moments.
None of us, me thinks, want hard times or hard knocks, but we can prayerfully seek the face of God asking, "Lord, how might this shape my spirit to be the person you want me to be?"
