Life Well Inspired

Walking with God

Walking with God incorporates all aspects of being a Christian.  It involves having a healthy prayer life.  Actively cultivating a habit of reading and studying scripture is essential.  However, the outward proof of our relationship with the Lord is in our actions and heart attitude.  Our testimony is strengthened when our responses to life’s trials draw us closer to the Lord and cause us to humbly submit to his sovereignty.  Our walk with God will be visible to others then.

I have learned over the years that this is developed through trials and struggles.  The posts I write here are pieces to my personal story.  God has brought me through many dark years life as a wife and a mom.  There has been lots of refining fire.  However, the close walk with the Lord that has resulted made it all worth it.  I pray that my story will encourage you and spur you on in your journey.  If you find yourself in tough times, I hope you find strength in knowing you are not alone and God will see you through.

Growth Through our Trials

How do you know if you have experienced growth through your trials?  It’s no secret that the Christian life will be full of trouble.  Jesus himself says that in this life we will have trouble.  Jesus also had to endure the trial of the crucifixion.  Paul was denied the removal of a thorn so that Christ’s strength could be made perfect in his weakness.  So we will surely have trials and troubles in this life.  But how do you know if they have produced growth?
