Please remember Natasha Terentii as she was in the hospital this past month for medical treatment. In her report, she shares what she has learned in her trials:
"What a joy to face trials, because it is only then that you can understand God’s wonderful plan! But then comes another trial and you must pass this exam, too!
I was reading through Psalms and, in order to understand them better, I had to go through a trial that affected me physically. I could be strong only because He didn’t allow more than I could endure. Still, I believed I just couldn’t do it anymore, I cried, I asked questions, I prayed and all these strengthened me. Then my friend faced trials and I was able to encourage her and tell her about His care. Great is His mercy and care for us! He is more important than anything else! Everything passes, but how is your character after all these trials? What did you learn from all this?"
"I keep meeting with the sisters for our prayer time every Saturday. Since we started praying, they are facing more problems, but we won’t stop. God has everything under control. But what do we do when facing trials? What do we choose? Do we murmur or bless God? It’s a choice! I have asked the Lord to keep me holy. When I was 18, I took a step towards God, but then I fell. Then, 15 years ago, I took another step towards Him and asked Him to keep me strong and He did. It’s a step by step process and involves a choice: either God or the world. Thank You, Father, for Your faithfulness, care, love, patience, forgiveness, mercy and endless grace! Be blessed forever! We must praise Him and tell the world about His great love as long as we live!"
