The  Tests  We  Face  In  Life


     The tests we face in life are sometimes intensified! Why? Because they feel unending.

     The long search for a job, an unbroken season of loneliness, or a long battle with cancer is made even more difficult by the fact that one wonders if it will ever end.

     Perhaps that is why the psalmist cried out, "How long, Lord, will you look on? Rescue me from their ravages, my precious life from these lions"  (Psalm 35:17). Here, we are reminded of the long period in David's life when he was pursued by Saul and slandered by the king's advisors. And it was a time of trial that lasted for years.

     Yet, in the end, David sang, "The Lord be exalted, who delights in the wellbeing of his servant"  (Psalm 35:27).

     David's trusting drove him to deeper trust in God - a trust that we can also experience in our own long seasons of testing, hardship, or loss.


As time drags on and answers seem faraway, teach us, Father,

to find our help in You and Your presence. Enable us to endure,

and empower us to trust in You.


When our burdens overwhelm us, let us remember that God has His arms underneath us.
