Personal testimonies from real Christians all over the world.
“I think for me, the biggest thing with the gospel is that I can come to rest about things and not worry about all the little things in life. As you get older, it’s actually super easy to be anxious and think that, just because you’re doing everything that’s right, then it’s going to really easy for you, but actually that’s not the case.
The truth is that God’s will is my sanctification and that means that I have to go through trials. I’m learning to have faith in what God is doing and to be at rest, because actually all these things are working out for my best. That’s been huge for me. For example, last year, I lost my job. That was a little bit tricky. I had bills to pay, I wasn't a little kid anymore; I couldn't just get by without working. But then, I could actually be at rest that God had something else for me. And now that I look back, I realize that the job I have now is so perfect. I could see exactly how God worked that out. I did have to come to rest before I got the new job though.
I came into other situations and I just remember being able to come to peace and being okay with certain situations. It felt like a big weight was lifted off of me; to not worry and to actually be at rest. It’s easy to say, ‘I have faith,’ but to actually be at rest and to not worry about things is a very different thing. I’ve really experienced the gospel of victory in my own life in that area; that I can come to rest. This is for sure an area in my life where I can say this is one hundred percent true. And I can also say that I know that the gospel works and that God does plan all things and work all things out for my best.” Megan (Canada) #ActiveChristianity
