Praying that the strength of the Lord will sustain you & bless you.
This time of year especially is difficult for many people. Reading God's Word and praying are important ways that we stay strong... or get strong! No matter what we're going through, God's word fills, nourishes, feeds and sustains us.
Trials and tribulations will do one of two things... They could lead us to a place where we say 'Woe is me...why Me?' and end up destroying us. OR, they will serve a greater purpose by preparing us to play a part in God's Kingdom here on earth as we recognize and bear a burden for others as they go through their sorrows. As we go through our sorrows and pray 'God, I know you're with me in this, I trust in You for all things, You're word says You will never leave me or forsake Me, and You alone will guide me." ....something wonderful will happen as God prepares us to serve other people. It's no small thing. It's glorious and miraculous. It goes against everything the 'world' teaches. It is 'other's' focused rather than 'self' focused. God will use you mightily.
Are you involved in a Christian community or church group? Belonging to a group where you can be taken care of, and also contribute is important and will strengthen you in wonderful different ways than just reading and studying alone. There are no 'lone-ranger' Christians. :-)
That’s great Daniel.
