As Silver Refined

by Kay Arthur

When disappointments like these smash their way into your life, you may want to scream, "How could God let this happen?"BUT WHAT IF GOD didn't just "let it happen"? What if the things you call disappointments are really His appointments -- events He is using to make you more like Christ? What if He is using your disappointments like flames to melt and burn away the undesirable elements in your life, leaving you pure and radiant -- like refined silver?YOU CAN BE DEFEATED by life's unavoidable disappointments, or you can become stronger because of them. Kay Arthur paints a graphic picture of the dangerous downward spiral of disappointment that can lead to discouragement, depression, or even despair.
