As the disciples and Jesus passed by a blind man, the disciples asked Jesus, "Who sinned, this man or his parents for him to be born blind?" To us this might seem like a really silly question, but at that time it was believed that when "bad" things happened it was because people deserved it. This totally goes against my line of thinking. But Jesus' response is perfect, "It wasn't this man or his parents, it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him." Then Jesus proceeded to heal the blind man and restore his sight.
God is bigger than anything we are going through, and he can be gloried in the midst of any hard time. When we are in the middle of what can seem like the worst day of our life, God is still there with us. I hope this sticks with you and when you find yourselves in pain, you remember God can use you and your situation for good.
I was recently sent this beautiful pendant necklace from Happiness Boutique. I love a good pendant necklace, and this one does not disappoint. The quality and craftsmanship is easy to see, something that isn't always true with inexpensive jewelry, and I love how it helps to dress up this outfit. Now that I'm back in school, I'm getting to wear my dress clothes again, and this jacket from Loft, is one of my favorites. This blazer is a similar option and I love it as well.
