Chosen for the challenge

There’s a saying: God fits the back for the burden.  Your back pack of troubles will not crush you.  You will grow, become stronger, and make it through.  I Corinthians 10 guarantees that. That’s mustard seed faith.


Let’s take it  further.  You were chosen for the challenge. That requires a growing faith  believing God allows that crushing burden on purpose.  He is proving something to someone.  We may never know what, who, or how.


When my husband entered the ALS support group with his confident smile and contentment despite his 400 # wheel chair and death sentence, everyone in the room took notice.  He was mustard tree strong!


Chosen for His blessings is easy.  Acknowledging that we are chosen for the challenge–that’s hard. The two go together. He can be trusted for both.
