Problems and Trials?

Problems and trials…
do not sound like fun…
and actually makes most…
want to get up and run.
For who stops to think…
that these trials we endure…
will somehow equip us…
to overcome much more.
For trials and tribulations…
produces perseverance in each…
And perseverance brings character
and then hope within reach.
For these obstacles in life…
are not won by default…
but only with perseverance…
with God’s Glory we exalt.
So reach for the Prize…
that is only found in He…
for when we fight the good fight…
we will overcome with victory.

“And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5: 3-4

  1. Sis, I just did an article that only touched on this, but this IS a pervading theme within the Holy Word for our current trials, tribulations and even the daily aggravations, chip away at the stoniness that sometimes remains in areas of our heart that the Lord is trying to soften. After decades of trying to serve the Lord and others, I find that the Holy Spirit who is an excellent Convicter (convincer!) is still working on me at the age of 63 and I know from the Bible will be doing until He calls me Home into His loving arms!! It gets a lot easier as time goes for it becomes easier to see the handiwork of God in our lives and with the experience of those times in the past, we TRUST the Lord so much easier in the things we go through!! Maturity, whether natural or spiritual takes time, the ease comes with surrender to the Lord!!
    God bless you Sis for your continued support for those hurting and searching and bless you abundantly as you continue in this needed and wonderful ministry!!! Love you in the Lord Sis for all you do!

    • Pastor Roland, I agree with you. We are still a work in progress. And yes, it does get easier to trust God and walk in faith as we look back upon our lives and see all that He has done for us. We don’t always see His plan as we are walking through our struggles but we will see it as we continue to walk in faith to the end. My brother, we definitely serve an awesome God. I can only praise God for what He has done for me and my children. His Word is Truth. He rescues, heals, and restores.
      God bless you!!!

  2. During worship service, we were taught in one lesson, not to ask God to get rid of our trials and tribulations, but instead to ask him for strength in dealing with them. ☺️

  3. Trials are God’s teaching tools. He disciplines those whom He loves and we learn from His instruction if we are wise. A great reminder, Angel.

    • You are so right. We learn from these trials. Life is like an obstacle course. And with each obstacle that we encounter, we will become stronger and more able to overcome as we persevere. God bless you, my brother!

      • This is why God allows us to undergo trials in life…they prepare us for life itself. The evil one has powerful snares set for us and we need to be as ready to fight them off as possible. Of course we have God’s strength, but we must be willing to fight ourselves as well…
