God Is There In Spite Of Your Pain And Suffering
©

Stephen A. Peterson


ON the morning of Sunday, May 22, 2005, I went out to my wife’s garden to gather a cupful of blueberries to put into the batter to make waffles. We planted these bushes just the year before and really expected nothing because they are so young. But to our surprise fruit appeared.

According to one of the local farmers who appeared to know quite a bit about blueberries in Oklahoma explained to me that the difference between a good blueberry crop and a poor one depends upon the arrival of spring. In Oklahoma, if there is an early thaw, there will generally be a later frost. It is that second frost that may not allow blossoms to form properly. However, a long frost period, often produce more and better fruit.

To the novice or one not knowledgeable about blueberry growth patterns would probably think long periods of frost cause damage to blueberry bushes. However, frost is a necessary pattern in the growth process of producing big juicy blueberries.

Most everyone knows what it is like to face very cold, frost killing periods in their lives. In their opinion, when asked, they would prefer to do without such chilling phases. In spite of the uncomfortable feeling, pain and suffering frost periods generally bring, such period often time bring forth the fruits of stronger character, stronger determination, stronger faith in God and His goodness and love to the faithful survivor.

When a person faces difficulties that delays or forces one to change their life’s direction, be very, very careful to give up, cussing, cursing and swearing about their fate, about the existence or unconditional love of God. Out of an experience that seems totally negative at the time, may result in a beautiful and wonderful new situation or opportunity. Like the sometimes long chilling periods of an Oklahoma winter and the effects it has on blueberries, God may have a plan that will turn one’s adversity into a fruit-producing blessing!
