THERE IN THE TOUGH TIMES

There are times in our lives when it is as though we must white-knuckle our way through, pressing on past sorrow, past tragedy, through adversity to get to the other side. What other choice do we have? We did not ask for the trial, but there it is looming before us, surrounding us, engulfing us. We go on because we must.

I remember that my sister said, during a long battle with cancer, that she felt like she was in a tunnel and the lights of a train were coming at her. She said she battled the fear for a very long time, and finally cried out to the Lord to release her from the fear, and to explain the meaning of the vision. He said to her “My child, you faced an unscalable mountain, and I have provided a way for you, but it is through the mountain. The lights are not those of an oncoming train, but my Light to guide you. Come, follow me.”

What mountains are you facing? Are they loss of a child, a loved one, a spouse? Are you facing the ravages of Alzheimer’s in someone you know, or even in yourself? Do you have health issues that are causing you to despair – a diagnosis that you hoped to never hear?

Or, are the events in our world weighing you down, immobilizing you, and you feel hopeless. Is your “unscalable mountain” one of financial origin – debt, loss of income…?

No matter what the challenges are that are laid out before us, capturing our attention and energy, God asks that we cry out to him - Look to the hills, for you help comes from the Lord.

He alone can make sense of the senseless around you – even the things you may have had a part in creating. He can bring order in the midst of chaos.

Let Him be your light through the tunnel. He will guide you through. He will give you joy in the midst of sorrow, peace in the valley, and hope in place of hopelessness.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
