Are You Being Tested?

When you were a child, do you remember being irritated whenever your favorite television programme was interrupted for 30 seconds by a test of the Emergency Broadcast System?

Those emergency system tests are a lot like the trials that come into our lives. They're unscheduled, usually unwelcome interruptions, and they always seem to come at the worst possible time. But unlike the test patterns on television, life's trials don't last for 30 seconds and then disappear. No, they can last for days, weeks, even years. And the exact reason for them may never be completely clear to us. Trials can make us feel helpless, but we do have control over one vital element of a trial - how we respond to it. Understand this: trials are indispensable to our Spiritual growth. In fact, we cannot grow as we should without them, as much as we might wish we could. It's your test that leads to your testimony!

Every detail works to your advantage and to God's glory.

2 Corinthians 4:15

Prayer for today: Lord, I can't tell what this day holds for me. If it be calm, I'm thankful. But if a whirlwind strikes, may I have the strength to reach out and grasp Your hand. Amen

  2. This is so true, Mommy Elvz. I've been tested so many times in the past that when another one comes, it doesn't feel that overwhelming anymore. I know God won't give us anything that we can't handle.
