“As we face
different situations, we should remember that God is sovereign over both the
blessing and the troubles that come our way. He desires to use everything to
build our character (James 1:1-5). He uses both good and bad to transform us
and guide us on our journey. God the maker of the universe knows every need of
man, and made provisions for that need according to his plan. The Lord gives
and takes away.” – Oswald (Ossie) Gould (12.19.
