In 1 Peter, trials and suffering are mentioned several times. We know that as Christians we will face trials. It is never a question of if, it's a question of when. It's important to remember that every trial we face is a refining process. Verse 6...

Isaiah 43:2 has been such an encouraging verse over the last few weeks: When you go through deep waters, I will be with you! When you pass through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned up; it will not...

Sermons. They always help me in the trials. I have listened to this one 6 times over the last week. Because it made headline news many people know Rick Warren lost his son last year. This sermon, How We're Getting Through (starting at minute 10), was...

I have been listening to "Desert Song" a lot lately! I love all the lyrics, especially, "In every season, You are still God." According to 1 Peter, in order for God to strengthen us and purify our hearts for Him, He puts us through trials....
