Most of us can remember a time when a birthday - especially if it was one's own, brightened the world as if a second sun has risen. - Robert Lynd

Discipline

We Must Neither Make Light Of God's Discipline Nor Lose Heart Because Of It.
Hebrew 12:5-6 And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons: "My son/daughter, do not make light of the Lord's discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son/daughter."

AFFLICTION

Not all affliction is for specific sins. God often sends affliction to purify and strengthen our faith, for his glory.
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. .
1Peter 1:6-7

This is the resting place.


Dew will never appear while there is either heat or wind. The temperature must fall, the wind cease, and the air come to a point of coolness and rest-absolute rest-before the invisible particles of moisture will become dew to dampen any plant or flower.
And the grace of God does not come forth to bring rest and renewal to our soul until we completely reach the point of stillness before him.

CHANGE

Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it is encouraging because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better.

Change Your Ways To Please God

God can make it possible through a spiritual renewal.

I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all you impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.

Ezekiel 36:25-27
