isn't it funny?

Isn't it funny how we would cry for days because our 6th grade boyfriend broke our heart for the girl with the training bra? Isn't it funny how we would stress out about that test in college that was going to make or break our future?

Isn't it funny how we would have that HUGE fight with our parents in high school? And declared we would never speak to them again. ever.

...Only to look back years later and realize how silly it all was. 

RIGHT?

Wrong I say.  Although those things seem so silly now, and we look back and think how funny it is that it was such a HUGE ordeal at the time.  But it was a huge ordeal.  It's those little things that made you the person you are today. 

It's that brokenheart that made you learn and grow and become the person you want to be in your marriage today.  Ok, maybe not the 6th Grade "heartbreak" so much, but you get the point.  It's that huge test that made you learn and stretch.  It's that fight with your parents that made you thankful for them now and will help you be the best parent you can be. 

So, no matter how funny it is, God really does use everything for His good.  Nothing is insignifigant to Him.  Be thankful for the trials, tests, brokenhearts and lessons you learn along the way.  They make you the person you are today.
