What an enjoyable and informational blog. I enjoyed reading all the answers.

If life was easy.....if there was never a problem......would we be motivated to look to God other than to ourselves.....would we not grow callous, lukewarm and self-sufficient? God has a plan and purpose for our lives, it is through knowing that and looking to His Guidance that we can grow to be more Christ like and live lives that bring Him glory and honor.

We live in a world that demands supernatural power that only comes from God to live purposeful, productive, and peaceful lives.

God did not promise us a life full of sunshine, we must endure trials and tribulations on this side. But praise God we have a Savior we can turn to. Keep seeking God's face, allow Him to use you to fulfill His purpose. In the end you will be stronger, closer to God, encouraged, steadfast, unmovable, and have a new reason to love Him for seeing you through. He will even give you a new testimony to share with this unbelieving world. Abide in the will of God and allow Him to mold you after His heart.

Faith is not necessary when you know how things are going to work out, that's knowledge. It's in the time of unknowing that having faith is what sees you through to the other side. Faith is what gives you strength. Faith is that light in your heart that keeps on shining even when it's all darkness outside. Now is the time to keep that faith alive!

Stay Positive, Work Hard and Make it Happen!

FAITH is also like a muscle. We must TRAIN ourselves so the immediate response is FAITH. Also, when we are not in faith, it's important to immediately RECOGNIZE it & change our words to line up with God's word!

As long as we live in this body of flesh, Christians will always be tempted and tried by our greatest enemy, the devil. However, we are never, never, never alone for our Lord promised never to leave nor forsake us and he promised he would always make a way. He told us to leave it in his hands, that he would fight our battles for us so no wonderful he said to be of good cheer and of good courage.
With each new trial that we overcome, the stronger we grow in faith.

Some may think it takes a lot of faith to be overcomers, but the Bible says if we had the faith the size of a mustard seed we could say "Mountain be moved........." Do we not all face mountains of doubt, stress etc. at times that could be cast into the depths of the sea by only relying on the most wonderful, loving, powerful One who knows no limits and that is our Heavenly Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

emoticon LaTonya for writing about the times and verses about our faith when we may find it being tested. Though, I have been through a lot as each one of us has been, at the end of each day, I follow my mantra, "Let Go and Let God." No matter the situation life may have thrown at me, God has always been my protector and salvation, guiding me through each and every obstacle. I so rely on my faith that no matter what, God is always within prayer's reach. It's such a blessing for us to be God's children and to know that we are never alone.

Love, Light & Laughter,

*~* Monika *~*

How beautiful and how true. My past 6 years has been a testament to this. No matter how bad things get in life I hold steadfast in praising God for all the things he has given me and know deep in my heart there is a purpose and trust in him.

Letting go of the control and trusting in God is something I am getting better at. My faith does not waiver as much as it used to......he has made me stronger!

Praise be to God!

I felt this Thread was the perfect complement to "How to deal with worrying". As Christians, we find our faith is often tested. Some may feel your faith is tested more than others. I come bearing good news!

James 1:3 "Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience."

Isaiah 43:2 "When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee."

My favorite...
Isaiah 40 : 31 " But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. "

1 Peter 5:10 "But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you"

James 1:12 "Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love Him."

Keep trusting in God! God loves us too much to allow us to walk into trials that he hasn't already prepared our way out of. Keep holding on and wait for God to bring your deliverance! Our trials are an opportunity for God to refine us. Not only will He see you through, but your test is now your testimony. It may seem like God is not hearing you cry, please know that He is there in the midst of your storm. There is no need to wait until the waters in your life calm, praise Him right now!

Thank You Father for being my everything. Yes, trials are uncomfortable and often leave me weary. But I thank you for being my resting place. Keep us encouraged through our trials knowing you have already overcome this world. Bless us to hide in your protection until our storms pass. Remind us our will is not Your will, Bless us to "be still" and watch you work!

In the mighty name of Jesus I pray.

Thank God and AMEN!
