Life is uncertain, a fact that is ever more apparent when facing hardships and affliction. These challenges can seem small, such as distractions that drain your time, or they can seem insurmountable, such as losing someone you love, failing health, or any number of traumatic experiences. Through life’s uncertainties, it might be difficult to hear that God cares about you for you and is there for you. But He does and He is! Romans 5:3-4 tells us that the result of such trials is endurance, character, and, in the end, hope. Though life is uncertain, we can be assured that God keeps His promises.
In this issue of the Record we continue our quarterly theme of Enhancing Your Spiritual Journey, emphasizing the refuge and peace we can find in Him when we are in the midst of life’s challenges.
