Withstanding Life’s Difficulties

19 02 2012

You wonder: Does anyone know what I’m enduring? Who really knows what I face each day? Can anybody understand my frustrations and sorrow? How can I survive these problems?

Minor difficulties irritate us. Challenges confront our resolve. Failures shake our confidence. Unrealized expectations rob us of hope.  Betrayal angers us. Disappointments shred our trust in God. Tragedies shatter all joy.

Turbulence surrounds us. Where can we find security? Who can we depend on?

Visit Chronic Illness Pain Daily Devotionals (Rest Ministries) to read a devotional I wrote (and find more devotionals written by other people with chronic pain or illness).  This recent devotional is entitled, “Withstanding Disease.”

Are you currently being swallowed up in tribulation? As if quick sand is sucking you into despair? How do you withstand your life’s difficulties?
