    Often times I find that the struggles of life show me who I am. Nothing. Which it turns causes me to realize how much more my Lord is. Everything. With Him there is Hope, there is true inner peace that passes all our understanding, love beyond what we can imagine. A love the allows the hardships to take our faith through refining.

    I pray that through the tests, I can praise Him. It’s very true. God will only give you what you can handle. But isn’t it funny how we always think we can’t handle much? haha I think we get pushed to the brink, because it has to “hurt” in order to be truly relying on Him. I have read some women who are struggling with certain things, that I myself can’t imagine. But their strong steadfast faith is inspiring. And what a Witness! people ask “Why can you praise Him in this?” GREAT moment for telling them about Jesus. :)

      So true Sarah! When my husband and I have gone through difficult times, I always find them to be very humbling. And it always turns out the same. I can’t do or get through anything without God. I too have seen and heard of other women going through horrific things, the death of a child, for example, and yet they seem to have an unbelievable strength about them. I know I couldn’t handle what they’ve been through, but the thing is, we don’t have to handle it because God carries us through the most difficult times in our life. :-)

      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a great comment!

      Blessings to you,

      Sarah, I love your comment! Thank you for sharing your heart. You’re right, we are stronger than we give our God credit for. We don’t have to handle it, because when we seek Him, He handles it for us.

    This was a wonderful reminder, “this is not to say that your struggles are miniscule but as mentioned earlier, God only hands you circumstances He knows you can weather.” Thank you Emily for that. I often put thoughts of praying for myself aside because others are in greater need. Thank you Carla for sharing the post.

    Thanks so much for introducing us to such a great blogger Rosann! Emmy thank you for your great reminders. You are so right it is easy to feel blessed and in God’s favor when things are going well, it is much harder to feel the bless in the mess. It is something that I struggle with often. Thanks again!
