Blessed Be The Name

Job 1:21, NIV: "...the LORD gave, and the LORD hath
taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."
Love found. Love lost. A goal reached. A broken dream. Both good and bad are in our lives.
Each thing we experience helps to shape who we become. Each thing that happens to us
should be looked upon as purposeful; allowed by the Sovereign Hand of God. Our
circumstances are not always pleasing; yet, we can always take pleasure within them in
knowing that God's perfect will is being accomplished. It's not easy; yet, the benefits are
tremendous. With each and everything we face, God has a perfect purpose. To say otherwise
would be to say that some of what shapes us is beyond His control. He sees in us the
potential of who we can be. His will is to see that we meet that potential, and He will
only allow us to experience those things that can be used in doing so.
