“Count it all joy, my brethren, when you meet various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”
I have been through my fair share of trials and I keep getting them thrown at me. Two week ago, I had a huge one thrown at me and it caused me to Trust God and turn to him for direction. That was my only option. Faith was leading me and the reward was a huge blessing given to me by God. Looking back at my faith walk, I can see how much I have grown. When my life is shaken and trials come at me, I know God is there right beside me. He knows exactly what is best for me. The decision to trust him took me many, many trials. Lots of heartache and self pity along the way. I can say now after many painful trials I honestly know that God is right beside me. He truly loves me.
I pray for all people in the world who face trials. I pray that they will over time be able to trust you completely. That they will let go of fear, doubt, and of the grip they have over their own lives. Lord give them the graces needed. Amen.
