Faith in Christ makes short work of all our sins. Then the devil has launched forth another host of serpents in the form of worldly trials, temptations, unbelief; but faith in Jesus is more than a match for them, and overcomes them all. The same absorbing principle shines in the faithful service of God!
With an enthusiastic love for Jesus difficulties are surmounted, sacrifices become pleasures, sufferings are honours.
2 Corinthians 4:8 (Good News Translation)
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;
Post-Traumatic Stress was loudly barking out its destructive message of "Terror, Loss, Hurt, Pain, Betrayal, Fear, Weakness, Impotence, Helplessness ARE ALL HERE, NOW, and you have NOWHERE to run!"
~Hers To Treasure
~Hebrews 4:16 NLT
For we live by faith, not by sight.
For we live by believing and not by seeing.
New International Version (©2011)
I will be glad and rejoice in your love, for you saw my affliction and knew the anguish of my soul.
