THE STUFF THAT ACHES

THE STUFF THAT ACHES
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Struggle builds stamina.
Crisis builds character.
Conflict builds courage.
Christ builds faith.
~~~
God has chosen:
Hurts,
Heartaches,
Headaches,
Trials,
Pain.
The stuff that aches …
To mold you,
Make you,
Break you,
Take you
Get you into shape:
The soul becomes softer,
The heart becomes purer,
The thoughts become wiser,
The mind becomes clearer.

You change.
~~~
In the end
The stuff that aches…
Conforms,
Creates,
The soul.
Don’t despise,
Or criticize,
The One
Who won’t let go.

He loves you
With an everlasting love.
He loves you and ....
 He’ll never let you go.
~~~
“In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while,
if need be,
you have been grieved by various trials,
That the genuineness of your faith,
being much more precious than gold that perishes,
though it is tested by fire,
may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.”
1 Peter 1:6-7
