Patient in Tribulation


Romans 12_12There is this story of the man who found a new butterfly struggling to crawl out of its cocoon. After carefully cutting an opening and extricating the butterfly, it died. Why? Because it is the struggle to get out of the cocoon that forces blood to pump through its veins and strengthen its wings. When robbed of the struggle, the butterfly died. The same example can be applied to people. We have to learn to trust the struggle that God allows us to go through. We have to learn to embrace trails and tribulation with an attitude full of faith and expectancy that God will see us through any storm. For through our struggles is where we gain our greatest strength.

Disappointment, setbacks, heartaches, headaches, struggles, trail and tribulations should never be looked upon as the end of the story, but merely one chapter in the story. There comes a point in life where we have to take a stand against the odds and refuse to allow the trivial things of today weigh down our tomorrows. Trail and tribulation does not come without first being cleared by God. Trail and tribulation strips us from “self” and allows God to rebuild us, it is then we understand that only the Heavenly Father can equip us with the necessary tools we need to fulfill our God given purpose.

Just as God open doors he will close them. Just as God closes a door he will open plenty more. The Word of God tells us ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you (Matthew 7:7) The Holy Spirit will prompt us to step out on faith and use the tools that God has already equipped us with to knock down walls and build a door that was not there before.

{Personal Message from J_LaQueenia}
Never get so caught up in being “here” that you allow bitterness to keep you from going “there”. I encourage you to get into the word of God and learn of the blessings God has already promised us. When we are down on our knees praying we need not to forget to end that prayer thanking Him in advance because He will be sure to see it come to pass. God gives answers in three ways: yes and gives us what we asked for, no in which he will give us something better or wait and blesses us with the best. God will send the right opportunities at the right time not a second too soon or a minute too late.
“Rejoice in hope, patient in tribulation, continue steadfast in prayer” (Romans12:12)
