Overcoming Difficult Trials



Everything looks different from the perspective of another.  Let’s set aside our despair for a moment and consider life in a third world country.  Let me see, how about life WITH cancer instead of the threat of it.  Financial loss is common in America these days.  The degree of the loss varies.  I lost a lot of money when I sold my house in Oregon, but I DO have a house in Colorado.  It is not as nice as my dream house, but it is a place to lay my head and a place to garden.  Many of us have lost homes.

Tonight and tomorrow, try to sing your thanksgiving to God.  Remember all you have and don’t forget your freedom to worship, your family, and your friends.

1 Thessalonians 5:18                              Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

PSALM 118:1 (NIV)                                                                                                      Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; His love endures forever.

  1. I am thinking I should have a Gratitude Diary. So many times we ‘forget’ how blessesd we are. Every day is a gift from God. I know we can have good and bad days, but even so, we have blessings and I can’t wait for God to give me so many new blessings this year!

  2. Great idea. I try to write 10 great things from my week on FB. I am also looking forward to the many blessing in 2013!!

  3. I have been blessed so abundantly through my life with so much that I can never list them all!! Amen God is So Good!!! Amen!!

  4. Beautiful reminder. There are so many things in our lives to be grateful for and yet we keep wanting MORE MORE MORE. I try to do a daily check in where I enjoy the little things like having a roof over my head, two lovable dogs, a husband who supports and cares for me, and a life that has many possibilities. Not everyone can say they can just go out and do the things they want to do. Life is lovely.

    • Yes, small things are beautiful and often grow into big things. Either way, a grateful and content heart is worth it’s weight in gold. It lessens any power the enemy has over us.
