the Road From Damascus

I will be developing this thought more as I go, but just after I got saved I received a word from a good and trusted friend that I would be like Paul on the road to Damascus. Recently in my life i have had the opportunity to share my testimony with several clients that I work with and find myself unintentionally comparing myself to Paul realizing that there are some definite similarities.

Each year for the last couple years (probably before i just wasn't paying attention) God has given me a theme for that year, this year is from Act 14:22

confirming the souls of the disciples, calling on them to continue in the faith and that through much tribulation we must enter into the kingdom of God.
Now i don't really pray and ask god, o Lord please send trial my way, but i have just learned to be at rest during the trial. If i am to have faith, that is the hope of the unseen, i must endure through that which is presently in front of me that i might gain which is unattainable except through faith by His grace, even victory over the power of the enemy.

be encouraged, He is able

It's though Isaiah 48:10 that we can get the blessing of Matthew 5:8. Be encouraged, I will be praying for much trials to come your way.

- Titus

p.s. I'm just kidding, I won't pray that over you. But I will pray Matthew 5:8 to be fulfilled in your life.

And just like Paul, you talk about trial as casually as someone who hasn't been through it ... but we all know you definately have. : )
