Today I got the worst news I could ever hear! I found out my dad has cancer. It was like my whole world just flashed right before my eyes. A rock just sunk into my stomach. Lately I’ve felt like God has been putting me through trials that it has been really hard to see the good in it all. I lost my job and now I’m on the verge of looking for new employment, and it’s been tough, my mom is unemployed taking care both my little sister and brother. And now this! I know it’s not the end of the world but it just seems the world and the people I love are suffering and I can’t seem to find a way out. I’m trusting God through this but to be completely honest. I’m angry, sad, and confused. It just seems nothing can go right at the moment. And I’m stuck to only just trusting God through it all. As I read James 1 tonight I’m reminded that we as believers must face trials in order to grow. It’s just the awful short time we face them head on that it becomes difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know God is up to something I just have to wait and see what it is.
