Box of chocolates anyone?

I was reading in the Bible the other morning and came across this scripture and it caught me by surprise!

"And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us."
Romans 5:3-5

Well I compared this to the famous quote, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get!"

I think life is truly that way. We really never know what life holds for our future. Sometimes we have it all figured out, other times we have no idea. Maybe we think we have it figured out and then the tables turn, like thinking you have the caramel filled chocolate and biting into it and realizing you just ate your least favorite, cherry filled :/ So what do we do when we eat a chocolate that maybe we didn't like or was too bitter or caused us to not want any more?

Well we keep going! Not necessarily to keep eating chocolates, but we move on with faith and hope for something better! We press forward and know that whatever lies in store for us will be better. That you will enjoy and learn something from it. So be sure you eat all the chocolates and know if you don't really like one, that there is always a better one waiting for you! :)
