Revisiting some of my favorites from October 2017, when I had of fun taking photos after a rainy day. During this time I had computer software that could only make basic adjustments. I could change a photo to monochrome, crop, and I was astonished that I could add text to images, only because I had been searching for this capability and for a while was not able to find it. Capturing the beads of water in these was so exciting to me, because they are so beautiful. Enjoy!
Do you ever look at your circumstances and see no possible way the Lord could bring something good from them? What benefit could come from illness, unemployment, a broken family, or other difficulties? While we can’t always understand what God is doing, there is one thing we can do – trust Him to use our situation for His own glorious purposes.
When we view life from God’s perspective, every hardship becomes an opportunity to trust His good purpose, fully depend on Him, and respond in a manner that glorifies and exalts Christ.
Commentary from the In Touch devotional by Charles Stanley, August 19, 2020.
Paul’s point is that the believer’s entire life provides the unique privilege by which he can serve others in Christ’s name. Further, our love for fellow Christians is the primary test of our love for God.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Galatians 6:10.
