Fiery Trial.

"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."
1 Peter 4:12 (ESV)

Fiery trail, I guess this is the perfect words to describe the season I am in. Some days I feel like my heart is fiery, like its literally burning in my chest. I constantly feel this hot and heavy feeling in my heart that makes its way up my throat every time I talk about Jax. This trial I am going through is hard, let me just tell you. I question a lot of choices I make and things I think about on a daily basis. Its a hard thing to have to grieve before a loss ever even happens but you know what? My son is a fighter and I know God is going to heal my son. For now I just have to move along, raise my child up in the way God wants me too and focus on all the good happening. 

Its hard to always be positive, but I am able to remember all the promises God has made to me. He will never take back those promises. Glory is being brought to God through my son, because of his story and that is amazing. So to me, this fiery trial is just a little road bump on my trip to heaven. This trial I know will always be with me, it will make me stronger and I will probably go through more trials in the future but I know that these trials are Gods way of purifying me. 

The point of this blog post is to just remind you that no matter what you are going through Jesus sympathizes with you because he was tested just like you and I. The difference is He is perfect and he  never wavered! I don't know about you but I want to be like Christ, I want to bring glory to God and  I never want to drift away from my God. I want to cling to him in this struggle. I want to sit at his feet in the midst of this fiery trial. I hope you join me there because there is no love greater than God's love. He will heal your heart and He will pull you through this burning. 

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful weekend!
