One of my favorite snacks is movie theater butter microwave popcorn.
Before you can enjoy the popcorn, you must place the bag in the microwave, and then apply the heat. Once the heat is applied, you have something that’s delicious, delightful, and delectable.
The heat is necessary in order for the popcorn to become what it’s supposed to be.
Likewise, some of the stuff you’re going through right now is necessary, in order for you to become what God wants you to be.
So when the heat rises in your life, when trouble comes your way, ask God, “What is the lesson you want me to get out of this? What are you trying to show me? How are you trying to grow me?”
God can use the heat to make you stronger, to make you better, to make you wiser.
