Waiting for the Trial Train to Pass By

Waiting for the Trial Train to Pass By

Let Trials Pass Like a Train!

#        #               #


Sometimes it feels like trials and tribulations run us over when we least expect them…or when we’re already in a weakened condition and have no strength left to stand.

Yet just as the last car of the train eventually goes by while we sit waiting…and  w a i t i n g…and  w  a  i  t  i  n  g at the track, so will the trials that enter our lives.

If we learn what we need to learn during the waiting period, then once the train passes, we can cross the track and move forward once again.

Here’s your inspiration for today…

“Trials can come like a freight train–one car after another, after another–but eventually the last car passes.

When problems seem unceasing, remind yourself, ‘This too shall pass.’ God will give you fresh anointing daily to handle everything that comes into your life.

Each time you endure a tough day, you can sleep it off and start again the next day…God’s favor is for a lifetime; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (see Psalm 30:5).”

–Joyce Meyer in “Starting Your Day Right”

My Reflections


Believe me, I know it’s really difficult to be patient in the midst of trials, but it’s a good reminder to think of the train analogy.

Some trains (trials) are longer than others, but eventually, they do pass by and the track is finally clear so we can move forward.

  1. This is so true. Sometimes you have to go through the trial to appreciate the growth and how long far you’ve come.

  2. it’s so true, sometimes it feels like “when it rains, it pours” – i agree, it’s important to remember that we’re stronger than what gets thrown our way

  3. I’ve been at that crossing waiting to see the caboose more times than I’d like. As you say, it finally appears and we can move on. I’m glad the Lord is with me while I wait and also when it’s time to move on. I don’t think I’d get by these trials on my own.

  4. I could agree with you more that go through a ‘trial period’ in your life like in a relationship or work and you just have to take your time in seeing if it going to workout for you.
