Trials and Tribulations are tests of one’s patience to see what they can truly endure!
I truly hope the outcomes from the trials I had in my life will give you hope and strength. We all have a purpose to fulfill while we are on this earth in this body we call a human being. I know during hard times you have thought often… but, I didn’t ask to be born. We must move past that, being we cannot change that. We must realize it’s time to accept what we cannot change and ask God so why am I here, why am I going through this or that?
It’s because you were chosen by God, His plan of your birth took place prior to you being conceived. You might as well consider yourself the chosen one and that you have a purpose to fulfill. So, let’s live out our lives the best way we can. We need to stop all the bad things that have manifested in our families. We need to take our eyes off ourselves and think about the less fortunate. We need to set the example for others and be an example for others to follow. During our difficult times that will happen during our lifetime, we must know that we are here to fulfill a mission, we need to figure out our purpose and that means we must have faith and know that GOD has our best interest at heart. God knows where our destination will be. But, we need to trust Him in all and what we do. We need to pray during our daily trials that will transpire. Because, the devil is among-st us. How do you keep the devil away? Pickup your bible! Start reading and praying. The bible is our answer to everything. Live by it and in it.
In spite of this, you did not trust in the Lord your God Deut. 1:32
I hope you are ready to hear about some of the trials that took place in my life. I call them trials because, you never will know the verdict till you go to trial and sometimes when you come out of the trial you still do not know. When you are in trial you are either innocent or guilty. My feeling now is you are guilty till proven innocent, that is why you are in a courtroom. Imagine Judgement Day, when God says I don’t know you. I know firsthand if we made good choices we wouldn’t be questioning ourselves as much. We are human beings living in a sinful world, we need to wear our armor each and everyday. The devil looks for our vulnerableness. We may be committing sin and not even think much about it till you walk away or something bad happens.
In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. 1 Peter 2:9
If this is so, then the lord knows how to rescue the Godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgement. Job 19:29
It is said, God stores up the punishment of the wicked for their children. Let him repay the wicked, so that they themselves will experience it Job 21:19
Should you trust others? Do you have all the facts? Do you have circumstantial evidence? Is it hearsay? Do you keep your thoughts in your head for a bit, pray about it, then speak up? Do you gossip? Do you put yourself in vulnerable situations? Does everyone have all the facts. There are people that watch, listen and hear what they are being told and not even know if it’s true or not.
I persecuted the followers of this Way to their death, arresting both men and women and throwing them into prison, as the high priest and all the councils can themselves testify. I even obtained letters from them to their associates in Damascus, and went there to bring these people as prisoners to Jerusalem to be punished. Acts 22:4-5
