In the Midst of a Storm

James 1:12″Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him.”

The last week has been really trying for me. I have been through some pretty stressful situations. I was doing well until the last trial, it broke me emotionally. As tears streamed down my face I wondered why? why do I have to keep getting hurt over and over again? I was questioning God as I poured my heart out in tears. I soon realized that I was falling into self pity and then apologized to God. Having asked someone to pray for me and turning to God was the start of letting go of something I could not control. As much as the situation killed me inside I had to realize that ONLY God can change this outcome. In less than a day the situation was resolved and peace started to take over. Even in my weakness he still shows me he Loves me and Blesses me.

Dear Jesus,

Thank you so much for being at my side through this trial. It is hard at times when we keep getting hurt again and again to not fall into sin. With your strength all things are possible and I thank you for strengthening me in these times of trial. I pray for all the people who are hurting to keep giving you their hurts so they can be healed and grow in their faith. Amen.
