Christianity Does NOT Exempt Us From Trials

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.

 Isaiah 43.2

This is a very comforting passage, I believe, especially in today’s world, considering the current national and global situations. 
As Americans, our news is a constant loop of endless information which must be digested and researched as a vast majority of media outlets seemingly opt for less than credible content or taken out of proper context. 
A station may start out discussing the Presidential election, rioting, protesting, destruction of historical monuments, the disgrace of  burning the American flag and Covid debates regarding restarting schools, facemask requirements and appropriate medical treatment.

As Christians, we are given wisdom and discernment for every aspect of our lives. First and foremost, fellowship with the Lord through prayer and reading of His Word is crucial. Awareness and avoidance of false teaching is critical, as we are personally responsible for knowing the Truth
Each day we are given, let’s give glory to God for the PERFECT peace we have in Him.  Let our lives be a testimony to those around us of trust, hope and life in a corrupt and dying world.  As we conclude, please take notice, the Word of God does not promise escape from trials and tribulation; instead, “When”.

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
