Sucker Punched

Today as I was working on a study I wondered how much endurance I really have during the trials that are put before me. Sure I get through them only because the day ends every day. Sometimes I feel like a child just enduring because I know I have no choice. So today I read James 1:12

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

After reading  this scripture I am so convicted thinking how warped my thinking is. Yes I get through it but am I patient? Do I rejoice in the suffering or do I plead for it to pass? Today I realized what a “Whimp” I am. I pleaded and asked God last night to intervene and take this ache from my heart and remove this trial that has gone on for so long. Today God reminded me that he can move any mountain but he puts them there so I will learn to climb them as he takes the lead.

Some mountains are higher and some seem impossible to climb.This is when I want to sit down and not continue nor endure. I am to be patient and hold tight to my Fathers hand and grip so tight my fingers get paralyzed and can never let go.

So next time I feel like I have been “Sucker Punched” and the calamities that befall me seems like it will be impossible to endure I will remember whose hand I am stuck to. I hold the hand of of the creator of every mountain ever created and he knows exactly how I should climb them. The best part is when I have conquered them he will be there with my reward saying “Good job Honey” Is there anything better then that!
