Trials of Life - September 12

Through the pain and trials of our lives 

We are overwhelmed and cannot see a way out 

We are continuing share the scratch recording of our song, You Are My Everything for the daily devotion. 

The lyrics for today seem very heavy.  Sometimes life is heavy.  Even now many people in our nation are facing a physical storm.  The reality that it is coming is clear.  All eyes are on the storm and where it is headed.  For days we have been watching coverage about details of the storm.  For many people it is time to take action or risk being hurt by it. 

The storms and trials of our lives are sometimes not so vivid.  But the trial of failing health, finances or relationships can be just as devastating. 

But God is able to help us.  Always.  We may see the storm heading right toward us, but our hope and trust is with the One who says, "Peace!  Be Still." 

Scriptures: 

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12) 

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. (Isaiah 43:2) 

Prayer: 

Lord, sometimes we don't understand why things happen to us.  Life can be hard so we choose to hold onto You, our only hope.  You alone can give us peace when our hearts are overwhelmed.  Amen. 

Blessings, 

Brad and Joan
