Faith Tested

Faith Tested


The last few weeks have been a struggle. A big struggle for my family. Faith has been tested. Relationships strained and it all kept piling on. It’s really been that way since Easter. Tough. I’m telling you, like super tough.

But, in all of this that has happened God has been there. God has shown up time and time again. At times, I felt like I might lose my mind, screaming and crying on the inside. I guess you should say I’ve been in a valley and am trying to climb my way out. Same goes for me family.

Thankfully, my kids don’t know this. They think all is good. I want to show them that mom can keep her faith and show them Christ’s love through all of this. On the inside, I might feel like I’m failing at ever side as the enemy tries to come at me.

When it’s dark, I know God is there. He’s there listening, even when I think He’s not. He is. I’ve found sometimes when God is silent he’s waiting for me to be quiet and listen or is on the move. I’m good at not stopping and listening and keep talking. I’m learning to slow down and be still.

It helps that my husband is right there covering us all in prayer as well. We’ve come together, praying and devotions at night together.

Isaiah 43: 2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.

When you feel like everything is closing in on you, look up. God is there. Don’t listen to any of the lies that the devil is telling you that he’s not. Christ is there.
