My friend, Peggy, sent me a devotional last week. It was called "Be a Bounce Back Person." In this devotional, it was described how a "bounce back" person sees setbacks and trials in their lives as temporary, not permanent.
These trials are expected by God, used by God--to strengthen us. This then went on to describe how studies have shown that during a hurricane palm trees stretch, bend, and are pushed over--all the while strengthening their root system and giving the palm tree new opportunities for growth.
Just like us--if we have a strong root system in God, our trials will be used to strengthen us, grow us deeper in Him.
Please be sure and visit Peggy for more Super Sunday!!
