The last three days have been well….testing…to say the least. They have been testing physically, emotionally, mentally, and as much as I don’t want to admit spiritually. But I am ok with that. We all need to be tested. We have to take tests for school, jobs, by our kids, so why not by God too, right?
I don’t think its even a question if we will get tested it’s when we should be asking ourselves.
I have been tested a lot in my life as I am sure you have too. Big and small. Heartbreaking and challenging. As each test comes along it doesn’t get easier. The test it self may not always be hard but the outcome is. To grow stronger in our faith and trust God a little more each day. To be humbled and compassionate towards everyone we meet. Towards our husbands. Our children. To a stranger.
Although I would like to say I yes I have passed and I am humbled. Truth is I fail each day and God covers me in his grace over and over. He wants to walk me to the finish line, cheering me on each test, you can do it, my grace is sufficient for you.
The last three days I have had tests that I wasn’t prepared for. Tests of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual strength. Everyone I go he reminds me of what is yet to come. I have stumbled across these pictures from friends posting on facebook and Encouragement through Biblical Words ….so I apologize for the proper credit not being given, although their websites are on the picture.
If you are going through a test right now I hope you find encouragement in these today as well.
