Joy!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), over the last few days... except yesterday, I've given you information.

Not information on anything happening throughout the world.  Information about what happened to me.

Life isn't easy.  But, God is good.

Even when we are upset about things happening in our lives, we need to look to Him.  Just as I did, when I was upset.

Have I been alone in experiencing troubles?  No.

Everyone will experience troubles.  It doesn't matter if we are Christian... or not.

However, being a born again Christian... by trusting in/believing upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, I know He is there for us.  Always.

How do I know?

I read God's Word... the Bible.  In fact, I read the entire Bible every year.

God helps us.  Especially when we go through troubles/trials in our lives.

Just as we read, in 1 Peter 4:12-19, "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
19 Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.".

Amen!  Amen!  Amen!

God is our faithful Creator.  He helps us, even through suffering in our lives.

If you are suffering in life, look to Him.  And, read His Word... the Bible.

If you do, He will bless you... and help you... always!


Until next time...
