Trials and Tribulations

Today was a difficult day for me. It seemed every errand became a complication of one sort or another. Not only for me, as I hear from my friends similar experiences. I silently prayed each time for an answer or direction. By the end of the day, the chaos had been pleasantly knit together into a nice cozy blanket to wrap around my shoulders and comfort me just as our God Himself were gently hugging me. Finding this verse pop up seems to be confirmation that indeed my faith had been tested and I had stood tall against the storm.

 

My FB memory popped up today…
“One of the hardest times to be joyful is when you’re dealing with multiple problems—seeking solutions but finding none—and then several new difficulties beset you. If you focus too much on finding solutions, you will sink under the weight of your problems. So it’s vital to remember that I am present with you in adversity. I am at work in your situation, and My matchless wisdom enables Me to bring good out of evil—ultimately outsmarting evil with good!” -Jesus Today by Sarah Young, p. 156

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” —James 1:2–3 NKJV
