Libby and I were recently talking about a women she sees each week. Last week the women noted that Libby’s life seems different from hers, and that when Libby prays it seems like God is right there. This women has faced a lot of difficult issues in the last year and is looking for peace. She wanted to know what Libby’s secret was. We thought what has made a difference was that Libby let the tough times deepen her trust in God and transform her character and understands that God uses difficulties (trials) to bring her into a closer walk with Him.
A nice interview on this topic entitled Preparing for Eternity — On Purpose can be found on Billy Graham’s website. Warren is best known as the author of The Purpose Driven Life.
