Trials persist – I don’t think God intends for us to live a totally peaceful, trial free life – and lately it seems to be we move from one fire to the next. From Anthony being BITEN at school by another 7th grader then also being beaten up at a church event by an older girl to the point of humiliation, to the washer breaking, so Soph having diarrhea, it just doesn’t stop. Then I take my deep breath, know my trials are nothing compared to others around me near and far, I listen in the silence and know my God is with me….my God is awesome….my God continues to grow me and remind me I need him and he is there.
Then I count my Blessings….1, 2, 3, 4, 5…..they go on.
I’ll leave you with this “blessing” of a new washer and dryer that cuts down the time like crazy from the old set – it is better than anything entertainment wise for Sophia…..she’d put her chair in front of it and eat supper watching it go round and round and round if I’d let her…..again, God is good and blessings come back to us in new ways when we experience trials! I just need to keep remembering that!
