Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. James 1:2-3
We came out of one trial, into another. We are running into issues to find a place to rent for four months, most apartments or houses don’t do a 4 month lease. It doesn’t make sense to pay for 6 months, when we are only needing it for a shorter time period.
I’m sure just as the Lord provided a buyer for our home he will show us how to move everything twice and where we should live.
There are many options for moving. We could store everything in a pod or with another storage company. We could sell most of our things and just move smaller items.
If we never face challenges or trials we won’t build our spiritual faith/trust muscles. Just like going to the gym and working out, if I don’t use the weights I won’t get stronger. I can’t get a gym membership and think that is all I need to do to get stronger.
I have to put in the work and the time. Same with building a relationship with our Lord and building trust/faith. We make it through to the other side of trials and we are shocked we didn’t collapse in the process.
We realize the Lord is holding us up as we go through those fires.
My Pearl today is that The Lord will carry us and we can have joy no matter how good or bad the circumstances.
