The CNN photographer John was told that a twin engine plane would be waiting at the airport.
Arriving at the airport he spotted a plane warming up outside the hangar. He jumped in & said: "Lets go."

The pilot happily took off.

Once in the air John told the Pilot: "Fly low over the valley so I can take pictures of the fire on the hill."

Pilot: "Why?"

John: "Iím the photographer for CNN.
I need to get some close up shots."

The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, then asked: "So what youíre telling me is youíre not my flying instructor?"

I know trials and tribulations are inevitable and necessary, but we have the promise(s) of or Lord to see us through and cause us to stand

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world John 16:33

 I live in crazy California with my wife, two adult children and my granddaughter, One day a time is our motto around here. When I start to have fear about the future I remember what Jesus said
ďSo donít worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Todayís trouble is enough for today.

Such wisdom. Rocco, that gave me chills.
 Thank Him.  I feel a little like a fraud doing that but it's exactly what He says to do .
  All this takes walking in faith.  I hear atheists say if God can heal you then why does he never grow back  the amputated leg or arm ? And they sit back like they've got you.  And all I can say to that is if God were to do such a thing He would be robbing us of walking in faith, because then the faith would be sight and no faith would be needed at all.
 Do you ever think our little family here has more then it's share of sadness and trials ? It's to be expected though isn't it?

This helps me, I have to meditate on it often.

For our present troubles are small and wonít last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!
So we donít look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever. 2 Cor 4:17-18 NLT

 A thought hit me the other day about Jesus praying in the garden before his arrest and crucifixion, he was alone and the disciples were all sleeping, so the only way we even know about this is obvious that Jesus told the disciples about it after the resurrection, thats amazing to me because he admitted that even he didn't want to face the suffering headed his way and diligently asked  his (our) father if he could find another way, Our father said no, Jesus obeyed  and three days later death was swallowed up in victory.

Matthew 14
27But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?

Phillipians 4
4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice;
5let your forbearance be known to all men; the Lord [is] near;
6for nothing be anxious, but in everything by prayer, and by supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God;
7and the peace of God, that is surpassing all understanding, shall guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.

If He speaks to you, do not be afraid. He will give you peace, and joy, and all of His fruits, and will answer you. But, lean and wait on Him for understanding, as God has all your needs, with the wisdom to give it.

Thank you Dean, your words touched my heart, because of my own experience in learning this important truth.

Something that God has been recently teaching me is to get alone with Him, and to thank Him for various trials in my life, and to praise Him. This is challenging to learn, as the "natural man" likes to do the opposite (1 Corinthians 2:14). However, doing this brings joy, and many times God will bring a blessing as a result. Here are a couple of verses and a chapter for reference on this topic.

1) "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;" (Ephesians 5:20).

2) "For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God" (2 Corinthians 4:15).

3) Psalm 107. This psalm speaks continually of God's "wonderful works", and "oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness...", and for those wonderful works. As an example, verse 24 says, "These (God's Elect) see the works of the Lord, and his WONDERS in THE DEEP" (my emphasis). Verse 23 is similar to verse 24. Compare spiritual with spiritual throughout this whole chapter; "judgment begins at the house of God" (1 Peter 4:17).

Again, I am learning that sincerely thanking God for trials takes plenty of practice, like a child learning to ride a bike. May God teach us these "wonderful works" of the Lord!

God comfort you, Octoberrose (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).  :)

Dear Octoberose, I feel your pain and fear of the things you are experiencing in your life concerning your children, I am right there with you. It seem like every trail we go through is conerning our children or loved ones. My son is a lineman and he is on storm trouble right now with this hurricane headed our way. I have two of his children in our home, because of a lie his 16 year old daughter told on him, then the last court date she told the DSS that she lied on her daddy, but they still want let him have his children back in the home yet. They said it is a process to get them back. Now his children can't be all together during this storm with their mother. We only can find peace through our Lord and saviour, knowing He will work it out.
I know how hard this is and so does everyone else.
I pray for your peace of mind and that God will lift the burden from your heart and give you a peace that surpasses all understanding. May God bless you through your trials.

Your sister in Christ,

 Your responses are so kind and so loving .  And you are of course right about our God being sovereign in our lives and our children's lives.  Thank you for sharing your concerns and I will be praying for JKF's son and yello62's health. 
 I'm going to go read Psalms 24,25. Thank you Pamela. 
 I keep thinking about waiting on the Lord- what that looks like  and what that means.  I think it must be an active waiting. Actively giving to God our concerns, actively asking for His will to be written on our hearts, and for His ways to be our ways.  Maybe it's just surrender - maybe it's peace. 
 I was listening to the tv a week or so ago and someone was on I usually don't pay any attention to.  It was Roseanne Barr. She said something so startling I even wrote it down. This is what she said, " What God puts before me I do- I don't try to argue or win- I just do what's in front of me. "   Wow.   Maybe this is just what is front of me to do right now, and God is letting me learn and grow in faith by being a part of it.   The hard part is the fear- but perfect love (His, not mine) casts out fear .
 I need to pray more consistently about our whole Truths community. I realized that as I read your replies and I wish I could hug you and hold your hands and we could pray together in person. 
 Oh, and I never heard Ray's talk on agape and philio (sp?)  love before.  Thank you for mentioning it a few days ago.
