It’s been a while since I have had some time to blog. The last few weeks have been pretty hectic in the Squires household. Not only did my wife and I experience the pain of a miscarriage, but we also took on a home improvement project that has consumed all of our time and sleep for the majority of the past week. Nevertheless, God is still teaching, molding, and purifying us.
James 1:12 has been an encouraging verse to me in this time – “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love him.”
Though I don’t understand it, I am thankful for the trials of faith that my wife and I have been called to endure. I know that someway, somehow God will work through all of this for His glory. I believe that God, through this trial, is teaching me to have a more thankful heart. God is purifying my heart to give him thanksgiving in the midst of trial. I am so grateful and thankful for the family he has blessed me with, my wife and two children. Most of all I am thankful for the sacrifice of Christ that pays the penalty for my sins, once and for all.
God has truly sustained my wife and I in this trial through various “vessels of grace”. We thank everyone for their prayers and support!
