The 2nd installment of #KnowBetterGrowBetter by Megan Alese
God created us in his own image, a perfect image. We are a manifestation of his love, a depiction of His grace and mercy. He loved us before we were created and He had a perfect plan already in mind. You may wonder if we are living His perfect plan, why do we have to deal with imperfections, struggles, trials, pain, etc? Well, it is all meant for good. Yes, even the bad. Romans 8:28 tells us this...
Why still do we have to go through trials and tribulations? Yes it all works together in the end but why? Here's why... growth and development. I stated earlier that we were created in God's image, a perfect image. Even the most beautiful picture/image has to endure dark times before it can be fully developed. It is the dark times that allow for it to become what its creator intended for it to be. When the time is right and it has been developed, the image will be taken from that dark place and put high upon a mantle in a beautiful frame for all to see. Though darkness tried to consume me at times in my life thus far, I came out even better, more beautiful and now my negatives are positives. Here I am; I'm everything my maker created me to be! During your dark days, faith in God will lead you to the light at the end of the tunnel. Remember that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
