Managing Challenging Seasons

I have a good friend who has a saying, “Everybody has STUFF!” That’s her way of saying each of us has our own set of challenges. It’s usually her response when we learn of a friend or an acquaintance who’s going through a challenging season in life. Let’s face it, many people we interact with daily are dealing with “STUFF” that we have no clue about. If you think you’re the only one navigating through life’s difficulties, just take your focus off yourself for a moment. When you look around, you’ll see a whole world filled with people trying to manage the vicissitudes of life the best way they know how. We’d be wise to extend them grace. The same grace we so desperately need.

Taking the Next Step

A lot of what God wants to do in your life won’t be done until you do what He has already revealed to you. When my children were growing up, I always told them to do what they knew to do right then if they didn’t know what to do next; and to leave the rest to God.

As I read this verse, I am struck by the first word. It does not say IF you experience trials, rather,  it says WHEN you experience them.
