Reflection, Tom Healy III – 6.4.17

 Jesus told his followers that they will face trials and difficulties. We go through them and we sometimes question God… Are you there? Do you care? The Bible is filled with believers going through trials, yet time after time we see how God brings His people THROUGH those trials and how those trials strengthened their faith. We read in Daniel how his three friends were thrown into the fire for not bowing to a golden image and when their persecutor, King Nebuchadnezzar, looked inside, he saw a fourth person “like the Son of God” in the fire with them. We may not know why we are going through a trial at a particular time, but I can assure you that God is in the fire with you. He will bring you through, and your relationship with the Lord will be stronger as a result. Just trust in the Lord, and watch what He does.

Reflection, Tom Healy

If you are anything like me, each morning arrives with a new list of cares and concerns, worries and anxieties. For those seeking a solution, I turn to Paul’s words: “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” God knows what we are going through, and wants us to come to Him with our cares. We should come to Him with thanksgiving, knowing that it is a privilege to be able to approach the God of the universe and that we are to bring all our petitions (our heart-felt concerns that arise out of a deep personal need). God, in turn, promises to give you “the peace that surpasses all understanding, which will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”. He knows, He cares and He alone can give you peace in the midst of a storm.
