There will always be trials!

As we are currently closing in on the 2018 Crawl 4 Christ , it seems there are always trials. Why are there less hours in the day and less days in the week when we enter the last month before a major event?

I know of several C4C attendees that are running behind on getting their rigs ready; from major projects to all those minor things we need to get done. I am personally sitting here in OKC waiting for the brown Santa truck to arrive each day, hoping that the next part I needed has caught that truck. As always, I procrastinated on what I had planned to have done 3 months ago , just so I can drive the buggy onto the trailer instead of it having to be winch on. I am also making last minute calls and stopping by business to collect items that have been promised for this years event.

It's not just this year, as Satan always tries to toss a wrench in the gears each year and Im sure, will continue to do so. It has been that way for the past 10 years, so why should it be different this year?

We as Christians will always be tested by trials. It may be the 4x4 that is broken or the part that hasn't arrived. It could be the money to pay for the Jeep or even for the fuel to get to the event. But fear not because God is in control. That doesn't mean you should discount using the common sense that God has given you and spend the rent money on some new LEDs. We will continue to be tested in all aspects of life, so be sure and just talk to God about your trials and he will show you the way.

We encourage you to meet any trials you face head on and always with eyes wide open. Seek guidance from God and other Godly friends and you will over come all trials.

God Bless You and Yours

so that no one would be unsettled by these trials. For you know quite well that we are destined for them.
