Is it a test? Is God trying to strengthen us for this challenge?
I don’t know.
What I do know is that our resolve has not been shaken. Our little one has us in her corner, and the love of Jesus flowing through us to her has no end.
So I am confident He will prevail.
Today, we will lean on scripture
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing. James 1:2-4
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. Peter 4:12-13
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31
