Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
Have you ever had a week that was like- “WHHHHYYYYYYY???” I think this week has been that one for me, a week from HADES. It was this week that I got a law school rejection letter in the mail, that my sister got REALLY sick, I had an emotional breakdown and oh, did I mention that I got sick too but with just a cold. …. and the week is not even over yet…. Anyways, these pass three days have been some trying times and I began to think about Job. I had to chuckle, because I bet Job didn’t know that his life was going to radically change once Satan went before God and God made His suggestion. “Have you considered my servant Job?” A question that would change Job’s life forever.
You know…we think being chosen by God exempts us from suffering, pain or any type of turmoil but what about trials of faith? Those times that God allow bad things to happen to us to see if we truly love Him as much as we say we do. Or what about those trials that God allow to prove to our Enemy that we are truly sold out to Him. Maybe Satan and God was having an exchange and the Lord said :”My girl Simone, she loves me and she’ll live for me forever – no matter what you, Satan, throw her way…” So Satan said, “K, I’ll prove you wrong…” Hence my week of utter chaos, but the Lord was right! I do love Him and no matter what comes or goes, I’ll always live for Him. I believe that like Job all that I’ve lost, I’ll get double for it- that even this test of faith, in the end is worth it!
So maybe you feel like Job, a little overwhelmed by your trial of faith but I want to encourage you. God loves you and He would never let you deal with anything you couldn’t handle and in the end, you’ll receive a reward of double for what you lost. Hang on in there and continue to love God with all your heart.
Until next time,
