Sharing Our Faith Together

Let It Grow…

When troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.

Large numbers of people are experiencing difficult moments and even whole days in the current situation. It is often during the most challenging times that we learn life's most important lessons and whether we realise it or not, these can also be times of great personal and spiritual growth.

At these times it is easy to ask the Lord, “Why me?”. Next time, I'd like to suggest you ask instead “Where are you leading me Lord?”. In times of adversity, we can all take comfort in knowing that our Lord lived among us, facing many trials himself and remembering that He is leading us to a place of His choosing. Our task is to pray, to listen and to follow.

Loving Lord, Help us to remember that you are ahead of us in all of life's challenges. Even if we find it difficult to rejoice in them, help us to follow your leading and face them in your strength. Amen
