The End is Near

Life  isn't easy. Sometimes, everything within us is shouting fear and doubt.We're ready to give up.

I believe, though, that the one who's faith is in the Lord, the one who is seeking after God, will always hear that still, small voice of the Holy Spirit that says, "It's going to be OK." He will continue to reassure us, and remind us or His Word.

"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." (James 1:2-3)

Hard to believe these troubles of life are for our good, and that we are expected to rejoice in them. Yet, after awhile the evidence of God's faithfulness starts piling up. After awhile, if we keep our faith in God, we will find ourselves growing stronger.We will start to see the fruit of our suffering.

And, ultimately, no matter how long a trial may persist, it does eventually end. It really does!
