Living by faith. It’s not an easy road to travel. We aren’t given a road map showing exactly which choices to make and which paths to follow.
Whether we’re nineteen, forty-two or seventy-eight . . . we’ll all be on death’s doorstep one day. For many, that fact is terrifying to consider.
From time to time, we all have tough circumstances that come into our lives. These episodes can either grow our faith . . . or destroy it.
Ever feel as though the tests of your faith just keep coming? Just as soon as you leap over one hurdle, there’s another one . . . and another one. Having trouble seeing the finish line?
It can be hard to understand how a loving God can allow such difficult trials in our lives.
The things that test our faith aren’t small. Often, acting in faith means letting go of the things we love the most. And it hurts.
Students groan when presented with a pop quiz or final exam. And we don’t respond much differently when life sends trials our way. Perhaps you’re struggling with a difficult situation right now.
The life of faith isn’t always black and white. It’s a mystery. In fact, sometimes it’s difficult to see God’s design behind the trials we’re forced to endure.
More often than not, we don’t fully understand God’s ultimate purpose for the trials in our lives. But during those difficult times, we can hold on to the truth that God can bring good out of our pain. Perhaps you’re going through tough times right now. Find encouragement on today.
Death is a source of fear for many people. It’s something none of us can avoid. And yet, Christ has conquered death! It’s a profound statement that deeply affects each of our lives.
We have an inherent tendency to try and do things on our own. And often it leads to a life that weighs us down rather than lifts us up.
