“The trying of your faith worketh patience…. The trying of your patience worketh faith….”
Boy oh boy is this the truth. It seems like some day’s, weeks, months and even hours are more so trying then others. I am not a real grumbler or complainer, although I am sure ‘some’ of my family members would disagree, but really I am not. It’s back to those ‘expectations’ I talked about a few days ago. But I can say that my faith & patience has really been put to the test the last six months. We have literally had one thing happen every week since at least the beginning of August. From vehicle repairs, medical bills and events just falling through, we have had quite a year. Now don’t get me wrong. I truly feel there has been far more good than bad, but I am pretty sure my faith & patience have been being tried.
So now the question is, how do I respond? How do my family & friends see me responding? I believe that God has a purpose for everything in my life. This is where the faith comes in. I truly believe that God wants my faith in Him to grow. This is where the patience comes in. I need to keep believing & trusting, and it ‘will’ all work out… I will keep looking up and then in the end I ‘will’ say that God meant it all for my good….
Until next time,
