Be ready for testing

Published 2:15pm Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Perhaps when things don’t always go the way you want them to, do you sometimes feel like Job? Do you feel like you are being tested for some reason? Do you wonder, why is God allowing this to happen to me?

Although there is an explanation that we may not understand now, we must always be ready for testing in our lives and remember that God is always in control.

Job realized that even though he had lost everything else, he still had God and that was enough. A time of testing is a difficult time, but it makes our relationship with God so much stronger. After we endure the testing time, God always has great rewards.

Christian love and sympathy are extended to the family and friends of Hugh, Cate and Jay Dunn.
