Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation.” Then you will shine like stars in the sky as you hold out the word of life. . .” Philippians 2:14–16
We can become shining stars through our difficult circumstances if we be still and allow GOD to sustain us. He never promised us a life without pain, or without rain. So, I sit in my rocking chair praising and thanking Him despite the pain. Do you want to be refined by God, or defined by mankind or your circumstances?
