This word means many things to different people. Despite what you think it means, distress seems to be growing larger in people these days. If you listen to people, you will hear them complaints about more things than not. You will hear how bad this president is or the economy or the virus and last but not least there is no hope. I have a question. Where are the Christians in all this? Distress is normal in our lives. Without it we wouldn’t grow and move forward. It is not there to stop us or defeat us. Distress is there to propel us to the next level of our lives. The Apostle Paul talked about distress all the time. He didn’t say it defeated him. Paul said he overcame them. The Apostle Peter call them the fiery trials of faith. So what do we do? We faced the distress, no matter the pain, or sorrow, or grief in our lives and walk through to the other side. Only to find out that God has already gone through the trial before us. And that we are kept by the hand of God as we walk along.

“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:” 1 Peter 4:12.

Don’t forget my book, Prayer, has been released and is available on Amazon.
