"We, as the Lord's children, we are put through hard circumstances. The circumstances reveal to us what our hearts are like. And what changes need to be made. Sometimes we don't like what we see in our circumstances but that is what God is trying to show. Not to condemn us, but in order to show us that there needs to be change. And we need to face up to it and make a decision for the change and we need to let the Lord change us and transform us. And the whole purpose of it? So we can be effective for Christ."
