When we have done all we can do, it is then that we must truly trust Him to do what only He can do. He promised that we would all face trials, but that we can remain in peace because He has already secured the victory. These 8 Bible Verses will encourage you on the difficult days.
It’s that time of year when we reflect on the past year and start making goals for the incoming year. If we polled 1,000 people, I’m sure many put health and fitness goals for the next year at the top of their list. But what if instead of worrying so much about what and when we eat, we focused on feasting on God’s word? Christine Trimpke shares how God’s word is the perfect soul food for this current season in her life she refers to as the perfect storm.
Where are you today? Are you battle weary? Or are you regaining your strength after having fought the good fight? Are you searching for meaning in your suffering? I want to encourage you to hang in there. Stick it out. Don’t give up. I’ve been in the trenches, fighting a battle I didn’t see coming and I didn’t want to entertain.

The holiday season is a difficult time for many to celebrate. If that is you, this post is for you today. I remember holidays when I found it painful to look at social media and see all the festive activities and view all the picture-perfect family photos, when in my heart I found it difficult to celebrate. I want to speak to you right now and let you know that I understand. But more importantly, I want to assure you that God sees you, God is with you, God feels your heartache and God uses our seasons of pain.
