Facing Trials: Thoughts for Meditation

We could all weather the winds of adversity. God warns His children that they should have trouble and hardships in life ( Jn. 16:33 NIV). The fruit birthed out of personal trials enable us to comfort others with the comfort we ourselves have been given through Christ.

Facing Trials: Thoughts For Meditation is a devotional full of grac, encouragement, and instruction. There are two thought provoking devotions for each of the twenty selected topics. Every meditation has a scriptural foundation with plenty of ideas for personal contemplation and reflection.

Cheryl Zelenka knows what it is to walk through the " Valley of the Shadow of Death, " and live to ascend the mountaintop of God. Her undiagnosed brain tumor caused clinical depression for nearly en years. Ms. Zelenka challenges each believer to change their negative view of trials and consider them as blessings. It is through trials that we deepen our relationship and dependence on God.

No journey in life is without seasons of tears and sorrow, but the " Son " shines in the valley as well as in the desert and mountaintop. With each new trial we experience, our personal Tree of Life buds, flowers, and bears fruit.

In Facing Trials, Cheryl Zelenka wrote about her personal experiences she learned while going trials and how mediating on the Word of God has changed her entire life.

I wil conside this life changing book to nyone who is struggling in life and they are dealing with th terrible hurricane and they don ’ t see a way they can survive and overcome this storm.

I actually like how Cheryl wrote the ook in way that readers can connect with and they might be encouraged by the words portrayed by someone who has been trials.

I really believe if readers would mediate on the scriptures and words presented in essay, it will greatly benefit them in overcoming and finding strength in the fo of their storm.
