Trials In Life by Sonya

 

During this time there has been many trials that you don’t plan on and try not to dwell on in life. It has been especially hard for everyone during Covid-19 where you experience trial after trial. These are unknown  times we are going through and territory with unexpected trials.
During these times,  I have encountered trials in both my marriage and with my family. It has been hard as I thought having all of this family time would bring us all closer. Instead it has caused conflict as we find ourselves getting on one another’s nerves.
My role as a Mother has been challenging as I’ve been impatient with my kids and find myself raising my voice at them if they don’t obey. I become someone I don’t like in my marriage and my family as this virus  has caused me to lose my  identity to some degree. I have found myself  lacking motivation the longer we have been in quarantine. I also found myself living in fear . We have worked  really  hard as a family to not be fearful and trust in God. Our church as been instrumental in this and always praying and pointing the church family to God. Isaiah  41:13 “For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you. Do not fear, I will help you.”
During these trials, we have prayed and have chosen to trust God to carry our burdens and not leave us.
God is carrying us through this season and these trials. He doesn’t want us to be weighed down by what is going on.  He desires the very best for our lives and for us to not change from who He has created us to be and do.
