I never understood why people assume that if you are a Christian nothing goes wrong in your life. Life for Christians is not easier than other lives, the difference is that Christians know and understand that in the end we win! So in the meantime we walk by faith and not by sight.
not praying enough, or that you are not reading your bible enough, or that you are not saved enough. It simply means that you are going through a trial. There is a lesson to be learned from it and hopefully a victory and a testimony at the end of it! Just in case you did not know, God will ALLOW you to be tested and tried. In Luke chapter 22, Jesus tells Peter that Satan has asked to sift him like wheat! In the book of Job, Job was greatly tested and lost family, property, and means of living. Life will contain many tests, will YOU still stand?
I had a family friend once who left her family. Yes she just walked out one day and got lost in the city that never sleeps. I was younger then but I always wondered what would make someone just walk away from a family. I do not mean like a father leaving his kids and divorcing a wife a or a deadbeat dad. I am talking about someone going out to the store and just NEVER coming back, unseen and unheard from. When I was younger that really bothered me but when I got older there was a time or two when I actually considered it. I really thought long and hard about just walking out of my own life and disappearing. I weighed the pros and cons, and really thought about whether or not my children would be better off with or without me. I believe that God's GRACE kept me where I needed to be and my FAITH keeps me believing that there is a purpose!
And STILL I Stand, because there IS a PURPOSE and I HAVE the VICTORY!
