"Trials Aren't Easy"

"It's hard enough to deal with the trial at hand, on top of feeling the guilt of "did I do something to bring this on"? Sometimes, we do, sometimes we don't. However, we are told to stand in the midst of adversity whether we created it or not (Ephesians 6:13-"Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.") But, we must remember, trials are a strengthening for us from God. He wants the "best" for us. He sees things we don't see. Only God knows what is around the corner. He knows the outcome of our trial if we faint not (Isaiah 57:10-".You wearied yourself by such going about ,but you would not say, ‘It is hope-less.’You found renewal of your strength, and so you did not faint.") And if I know God...It's always going to be GREAT! Sometimes, we must take a few steps back to move forward." And as we surrender ourselves to Him, We will see Him work everything out for our good and His purpose (Romans 8:28-"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.")
