Not so Uncommon
1 Corinthians 10:13 (GW)
13 There isn’t any temptation that you have experienced which is unusual for humans. …
Have you ever felt alone in your battle? I certainly have. I’m facing some particular challenges in this season that are new to me. According to the Word of God, my challenges are quite common. It’s good to know there are believers around the world who are facing the exact same things.
Here’s a humorous example. When it comes to parenting, I’ll admit I don’t always have my natural ducks in a row. In fact, the PamFam eats breakfast more often in the car than at the dining room table. The other day I was in traffic and noticed a teenage boy in the car next to me eating scrambled eggs out of a foil packet! I felt so much better about my girls munching on toaster waffles in my car.
Whatever challenges you’re facing, take comfort in knowing you are not alone. Somewhere on the planet, someone else is facing that same challenge. And with God’s help, you’ll share a common victory.
Success and Progress!
