Fear No Trial


And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm, and steadfast. – 1 Peter 5:10

When I was a child, I dreaded anything going wrong. I’d have nightmares about my parents dying. I grieved deeply at the idea of losing my grandparents. I couldn’t imagine how I would handle even the death of my pet cat. Nothing went wrong, and so I didn’t learn that I could survive devastation.

Guest Post: Finding Joy in Christ through Bible Study

I've met some wonderful bloggers, and Rosann is one of my favorites! She takes her walk with God very seriously, and her joy in doing so is quite evident. This creates a challenging and uplifting blog. Thanks, Rosann, for sharing your inspiring journey with my readers!

Total transformation. 
A completely changed person is who I see when I look in the mirror every morning.  Who do you see through your reflection?  Maybe your story is similar to mine.    
I reflect back to the person I was just ten years ago.  I was young and selfish.  Living it up as a twenty-something wild girl.  Lukewarm in my faith.  Career-driven.  Idolizing all the comfort objects of life.  Especially money.  Feeling like I had everything I wanted…even if it meant living the rat race to obtain my perceived happiness. Life wasn't about living for Christ.  It was all about living for me.
