My Monday Prayer: Hardships Working for the Good

My Monday Prayer: Hardships Working for the Good
Roy Lessin and Marina Bromley

Hardships Working for the Good
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow

I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser (John 15:1 NKJV).

God is working all things together for a greater good:
Wheat is crushed before it is turned to bread.
Incense is cast upon the fire before the fragrance within is set free.
Soil feels the blade of the plow before the seed is planted.
Pressure is applied before the diamond can be formed.
Irritants are added before pearls are created.
Gold is refined before it becomes pure.
Wine is poured from vessel to vessel before its taste is sweet.
Vines are pruned before they produce much fruit.

My Monday Prayer
-Marina Bromley

My Precious Father God, You walk through each valley by my side, often leading me to sweeter pastures. I know that I am not immune from hard situations in life, help me to remember that You are using it for my benefit. Grow me to maturity, helping me to see the benefit of each trial, and to recognize Your hand at work in each circumstance. I need You in my life every day and want to give my time with You as a priority, not just to benefit me but to grow and equip me to better serve others. Thank You for being so faithful to work all things for the good, in Your time. In Jesus' name, amen.
