Life is Full of Challenges: Thank God for helping us Overcome

I’ve been thinking about some of my challenges in life. And as I look back over them, I’m thankful that the LORD brought me through. I’ve come a long ways. And I have much more to go.

Question of Week 13: What Challenge You’ve Overcome?
As for me…I was brain storming this week. And I came up with many.
My years of schooling in fear of failing some classes
My years of sleeping by a window when a storm came
My first job, destasseling corn for about a week that brought the pain in my hands

But, out of all of these above, the one I choose to share when I thought I wasn’t saved.
Yep. This went on for years. I felt like I was on a roller coaster.  Mercy, Mercy me.

I shared some of my thoughts with people I trusted.  They ensured me that I was saved. They showed me scriptures in the Bible. But, still, some thing was convincing me that I wasn’t saved.

I could go into detail. But, I don’t want to. It took a while for me to overcome this challenge of my faith. There came moments in my life to where I believe that the LORD was telling me that I was saved.

I would be listening to Christian programs on TV. The speakers would say something that my spirit needed to hear.  There were times when I was in prayer, the Spirit of the LORD spoke to me.

One day, I was sitting in a chair. I was still but, I felt as though I rocking by and forth in a boat.  And the thought of being saved came to be. I was still in the boat of my salvation.

Yet,  out of all of this, it didn’t click with me. I still have doubt. Then one day, I believe that the Spirit of the LORD spoke to me again.  That I will  depress myself if I keep thinking that I wasn’t saved. That caught my attention.

I can’t recall how long it took me to come to the saving knowledge that I was being saved.  ~ It’s a wonderful feeling to know that you know that you know about things in life. And in all the time, I was going through, I always turned to the LORD. ~ No matter what came to me, I turned to Jesus.

The LORD is with me on life’s journey. I believe that I’m more saved then I was last month. I know that challenges will come day by day. I have to trust and believe God. He will guide me through. Amen!

I’m wishing all the best during the 2nd quarter of 2017.
Have a Great month of April!
Peace to you on your journey.

Thanks for reading.
God bless you.
