All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

Holiday time sure,but in my case it's both holiday and birthday time. Thanksgiving passed went to Salvation Army to dinner after work.Sunday I will turn 44,Christmas coming up more importantly about Jesus Christ rightfully so world's saviour,New Years around the corner and my late mom who passed away 2 yrs ago,birthday was January 11th all obviously around the corner. I recently returned to church joined a new one after 3 month absence,but I kept faith. Trying to stay strong praying more,read bible daily,daily verses online,still overwhelmed and stressed yet keep going. Looking forward 2019 things I hope to get accomplished and just surviving 365 days year in and out until death or Christ returns. Relieving knowing trials and tribulations won't last forever.Heaven will be so much better look forward to meeting Jesus and God reunite with mom,grandmom and those who passed before me.

Thanks appreciated

Hi Daniel,

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. :-) 

Just joined a new church last month,attend also Grief groups meet on Wednesday just got back home from it. They know I mention what I posted on here.

That’s great Daniel.
