We all have challenges in our lives. What helps us get through these challenges?

I have been abused, abandoned, divorced, lost my mother, father and stepmother to cancer and emphysema. My children were taken away from me. My fiancé died three months before our wedding day. I had breast cancer, went through chemo and radiation and now I have stage 4 kidney disease. Dialysis looms in my future.

Who or what helps me to overcome life’s inevitable challenges? GOD gets me through. My faith is strong. I know that God is good, that God loves me and He will take care of me. The love of my friends and family get me through, especially the love of my husband. A really good therapist helps me get through.

What helps you get through?

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13


Help me to face the challenges ahead trusting in your love, your goodness and your power. In Jesus name I pray, Amen

  1. Hello,
    Thank you for sharing your struggle and your hope. Often times, when I am in a difficult place, the Lord reminds me to seek His Word and find all the verses that speak to the circumstance I am going through. I write them out and pray through them. It helps me keep proper perspective. It sounds like you already have a great circle and some solid supports. ❤


  2. I’m sorry you’ve experienced all these challenges but I’m glad you have found hope in Christ in the midst of it. He is truly the only one who can get us through the challenges of life! Visiting from FMF #16.


  3. Goodness girl, you have had a lot of challenges. I am so glad that you have Christ in your life. Can you imagine trying to do it without him?? Welcome to five minute friday!


  4. You have faced so many challenges yet have clung to the one who never abandons. “”Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.” Isaiah 43:1.
