Trials, Temptations, Tough Times

Trials. Temptations. Tough times.

We go through things... some things people never even know we go through.
Sometimes God allows us to go through things to help us grow in our walk with Him.


I moved two years ago to Wilmington. It was a really hard time for me. I had to say goodbye to my friends..... and if you've ever had to do that then you know how hard that is!
But God used that hard time to make me grow, to grow in my walk with Him.

James 1:2-4 says, 
" Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

So be thankful if you are or have gone through tough times, temptation, trials..... because if you look close enough you can see how God used that for the our good.

So remember, God can turn hard times into a time to grow.

Ever feel overloaded? Or that you had to much to do?
I have felt that I was taking on too much to write. I mean I want to write songs, blogs, devotionals, books and more. So at times I feel like it is too much. At times I feel overloaded with homework. Ever feel that way? You probably have. 

Philippians 4:13 says, "I can do all this through him who gives me strength."

Jesus is always there to help you along. He is always there for you. 
So if you ever feel overloaded with school, hobbies, or anything than remember where your strength comes from. Jesus Christ.

Lies, Lies, Lies

"You will never be worth it." "You will never be beautiful." "You weigh to much." "Everyone's judging you." "No guy will ever like you." "No one wants to be your friend."

These are some of the lies Satan loves to whisper in your ear. Satan is also referred to as the ' Father of Lies' in the Bible. 
How do we overcome these lies in our lives?
One way is to spend time in the Truth, God's Word. Satan wants to keep you from reading the Bible. He doesn't want you to become closer to God, he hates you. God loves you. 

James 4:7, "Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you."

Do not believe Satan's lies. Spend time in the Truth so that you will recognize those lies for what they are. Always be on guard.

Spend time in the Truth. Pray to God to help you.
