There are quite a few Christian worship songs out there about being refined and made holy. Have you ever thought about what you might be asking for if you sing that?

Being refined is a hot, uncomfortable and painful process! Just like with molten metal, the bad, impure stuff is literally burned away – ouch! The result though, is a whole new level of purity.

If this week has been tough maybe stop and listen to what God might be saying to you through it. Maybe your prayer should be not so much ‘make it stop!’ but rather ‘help me grow through this’

Read Hebrews 12v4-9 here: http://bit.ly/15k7Iey
