We never want to go through challenges. If given the choice none of us would elect to endure the trials and tribulations of life. Nevertheless, they will eventually come to us all. Usually, they catch us unaware and bring us to our knees. The sooner that we can look up and cry out to our God, the sooner that we can get back up.
We cannot control situations. Nor the things that happen to us. But we can control how we respond to it.
When my life feels as if it is whirling out of control and I become fearful, I try to remember that God is always with me. He is the Master of the Universe and He loves me. While He might not prevent me from going into the fire, He will be with me. If I seek His guidance continually, He will always lead me the right way and help me overcome each obstacle. His love doesn’t stop there, however, He will walk with me every step of the journey. And when I feel defeated, alone, scared, overwhelmed, etc., He will pick me up in His arms and carry me.
The trials and tribulations are necessary. It is by and through them that we are able to grow and become more fruitful for the Lord. Without them we would never fully understand His love for us.
Whatever you are going through, just remember this too shall pass. It all comes in seasons. The pain you are experiencing today, will give you the strength and wisdom that you need for tomorrow. Hang in there. God will love you through this.
Love and blessings,
