Saint of God your tribulations are for your glory....that you may shine as a beacon in this lost world, and that you may come forth as pure Gold before the Most High God. He wants to show His power through you, His Grace, His Mercy, His ability to sustain His children in the most difficult of circumstances. Saints it is all about HIM, not all about us as some would teach you.
God does not allow your tribulations because He wants to destroy you, He allows them because He wants to perfect you for eternity, that His Glory may be seen in you!
