I've been pondering lately, about faith in my Lord. There have been things that He has allowed into my family's life, that make me question God, " Why me, why now and why this "? And I get a simple answer "so that the tested genuineness of your faith-- more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested with fire-- may be found to result in praise, honor and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 1st Peter 1:7
What is faith that is not tried ? It's easy to believe in God and have faith when everything's going fine. But when your work truck breaks down, and to take the family vehicle to work, only to that break down too, a tree falls down in your back yard, a baby is born, and your son have his first seizure and to watch him be carried away in an ambulance, you start to cling to the only hope you have, and for me, that is Jesus. I don't know where I would have turned to if I hadn't have been saved and kept my eyes on Him !
And then our only vehicle broke down again last night. Thankfully, we weren't far from home and were able to get back in one piece. James and my brother Aaron saw that we needed new brakes, new hub assembly, calipers and rods. They are currently working on it right now 😁
So our faith has been tested and tried these last few months. And I pray we will and are coming forth as gold for the sake of Jesus name ! I want our life to be a testimony, when they see that life has indeed, thrown some pretty big curve balls, and even while it is still hard for us, they see the joy we possess in Christ alone 😃
