by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – You Won’t Drown
Editor’s note: Another of Nancy’s ‘The beatings will continue until morale improves’ posts on the subject of motherhood. Yawn. She’s such a nag and her messages all too repetitive.
Life is rarely easy. Motherhood is not easy. We continually face challenges, but I want to remind you that God is with you in all of them.
It’s easy to complain, “I’m going through such a fiery trial. How will I make it?” Or, “I’m going through the waters. I hope I don’t drown.” Dear Mother, this is the wrong confession. Look again at this wonderful promise from the Lord. He says that when you go through the waters, you will not drown! He promises that when you go through the fire, you will not be burned! When you go through these trials, He reminds you: “I will be with you!” You do not go through them on your own. God is with you!
Can I encourage you to change your confession? Instead, pray: “Father God, thank You that You are with me. I’m going through the fire, but because You are with me I will not be burned. I will come through this trial without the smell of fire upon me. Thank you, Father.”
