Have you noticed the common denominator in each of the stories I’ve shared in this chapter?
After each trial, how did each of these the response? At first, they grieved. They took the time to feel. They felt all the feelings necessary. It’s okay to feel sad. It’s okay to feel angry. Even okay to feel scared. Is natural for us to feel this way. You would have to be heartless and soulless robot if he didn’t feel the pain from your trials. Sometimes the oyster seems to tightly shut trust open it. You can feel like the jar of marinara sauce just won’t open, no matter how hard you try. It even hurts your hands in the process. But here is the other common denominator. Each person made the important decision to open it. Oysters can’t stay shuttle forever.
One way or another, they will open. And you will see all that’s inside. It is okay if it takes some time. There are trials that I experienced 10, even 15 years ago and I’m just now discovering pearls from. The key is you have to be willing to open. You need a willing heart and spirit that says, “God, this is really tough. It doesn’t feel like I’m going to get to the other side of this one. But I will keep moving forward, because I know, no matter what, is going to be a beautiful blessing on the other side.” This is how our hearts change and become stronger. We become more loving because of trials. Love pours more love into all of our relationships.
My Opinion: I really enjoyed this book as there are difficulties in relationships and work rather it’s a marriage or just been boyfriend/ girlfriend, you will fight in the will be disagreement and how you handle them and become stronger together is how you really shine.
