This post is a little bit different than my others. I just feel like faith is so important when I see people going through trials & tough challenges. I've been talking to a number of friends lately, who, on the outside, look like they have it all together. Fancy house, nice cars, pretty family...Yet, they are struggling, BIG time. Tough challenges, adversity, just life coming at them like a freight train. I can totally relate. I won't bore anyone with my junk but I, too, am dealing with some really challenging things lately.
The key is to have the right perspective. The victory is ALWAYS just on the other side of the toughest challenge. This quote lays it out perfectly. Yes, I know it is NOT easy to be positive, expect the best & have faith but that's exactly what we need to do. We need to trust that God has our back & is disciplining us for our good. Just like in the book of James in the Bible, we must "count it all joy, when we face trials of many kinds. For the testing of our faith develops perseverance, perseverance MUST finish its work so we will be mature & complete, not lacking anything."
It's God's way to prune is, to make us stronger, to bring out the best in us & get us where He wants us to go. I hear people say all the time that God is in control. Well, He gives us free will to make our own decisions. How our life plays out is in direct proportion to our level of obedience, faith & the actions we take.
You can get out of any situation you are in with the right perspective & attitude. Trust in God's provision & know that with God, ALL things are possible to the person that believes !!!
