Trials and tribulations are nothing new, it’s been there since the beginning of time. We all face challenges on a daily basis, and we all sometimes trip and slip-up. But I want to make the bold statement, that recovering from a difficult test is sometimes even more difficult than the test itself. Because it is so easy to fall into self-pity. The answer to a quicker recovery, is God! The moment I realise that it is not about me, I can willingly turn my eyes back to Jesus, and begin to ask God to show me the bigger picture for my life. And even if I don’t see all the pieces of the puzzle, I will have comfort that I’m busy building a piece of Godly art!
Prayer: Dear God, I know that it is sometimes a lot easier said than done, to remain strong and to endure all the tests we go through. But please focus my eyes today on becoming God-confident, because I know that a lot of times it is my own self-reliance that gets me into trouble. You know every obstacle I’m currently facing, and You know every emotion that is accompanying my problems. I don’t want to rely on my own limited solutions any longer, but rather on Your inexhaustible strength to endure this difficulty. I trust Your way out of this! Amen
