Helpful advice that I jotted down and now I can't remember from whom---either Paul Tripp or Paul Miller
when going through hard times remember:
1. I am betrothed to Christ
2. He is preparing me for a wedding
3. I need faithfulness to Christ
4. Don't be short-sighted or self-absorbed
5. God's goal is not necessarily to change the situation , but to change me. Ask:
What do I need to learn?
What is my spiritual myopia?
What do I need to change?
