Troubles are Over

Feb 23, 2022 | Healing, Testimonies | 0 comments

Today, while reading a devotional by Corrie Ten Boom (June 13, 21),  I realized just how far I have grown in my relationship with Jesus, and how I trust Him and His word.  I confess I do not read just one devotional at a time, I keep reading until words jump out and grip my spirit.  This is what I read: “You who are in much trouble can be of good cheer.”

Corrie goes on to say: “One day your troubles will be over and you will not need to fear anymore. ‘Jesus will be your victory. Victory means – an act of defeating an enemy or opponent in a battle.  The enemy has been defeated!”

What was wrong?   Here is my short troubled story from years ago:  I graduated from high school and I was filled with so much pain and fear.  I wanted to succeed in life, I did not know at that time the reason for my poor grades and poor reading skills.  I was tested and diagnosed as having Dyslexia, known as a reading disorder. It is characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence. There is that word again “trouble”.   “You who are in much trouble can be of good cheer.”

Left untreated, dyslexia may lead to low self-esteem, behavior problems, anxiety, aggression and withdrawal from friends, parents and teachers.   The inability to read and comprehend can prevent a child from reaching his or her potential as the child grows up.  (Jull 22, 2017 Dyslexia symptoms and causes – Mayo Clinic)

How did God help and what has changed in your life as a result?   I have learned just what a compassionate, loving, caring, graceful God He is.  I asked for help and that started my journey to wholeness.  I have met many wonderful (Godly) people who gave of their time and compassion to help me learn and turn away from anger, unbelief, and bitterness.

I also learned to read. Praise God His wonders to behold. Corrie went on to say, “one day your troubles will be over, and you will not need to fear anymore.”

Zeph 3:17 “Therefore it is possible not to be overwhelmed by difficulties. God will rejoice over you and you will rejoice in Him.”
