Test for a testimony

Treadmill Treats Monday Message


Test for your testimony


I always try to look for a lesson in everything that happens in life.

I always look for the silver lining and for the reason that things happen to me.


I never say “Oh poor me, why is this happening? This always happens to me,  figures… I knew it wouldn’t go my way.”  No, I look at each knock down, each hard time as a teacher, I needed to learn this lesson, what was it and why?


My Bishop says when troubles come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy, for when you know your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.


I belive that, I always have had a strong faith that it will all work out okay. In the last few years that faith has grown tremendously.


I no longer worry when faced with a crisis or when it feels like the world is coming at me. No, I put my head down, I walk through the storm and I pray and I praise him. I know God will protect me no matter how bad it may get, I am not afraid. I know that I will get past it, get through it and I will have that rainbow on the other side.


I cannot tell you how many times my life has hit rock bottom. How many times I wanted to give up but yet I held on and it was after those times my life had changed for the better.


Sometimes you need things to be taken away from you, you need your life shaken up,  you need to have your faith tested before you can move on to bigger and better things.


But if you don’t learn the lessons from it, it will continue to happen to you, you will repeat the same mistakes over and over again and over again.

Learn from your mistakes, wear them like a badge of honor, don’t be ashamed of them, they are there for a reason…to teach you not to shame you.


Everyone makes mistakes, we are human not perfect why is that so hard for us to realize?

The real purpose is to learn, to be open to change and to trust in God and his plan for us.


So today my friends, remember when things are bad, when life gets hard, when you feel like you can no longer go on, hold on, pray, give thanks for the things you do have and know this is all just test for your testimony.


“Be the change you want to see”
