When It Is Well

written by Joe Zhu

When trials come, we run to the Lord. We seek refuge in His promises, we meditate on His word and remain constant in prayer. Passages like Psalm 62, Romans 8:28 or Lamentations 3:22-24 may come to mind to remind us of hope. Heaven becomes much more desirable as we long for God to wipe away our tears (Revelations 21:4). We remind ourselves of the purposes of trials (1 Peter 1:6-7, Romans 5:1-5) and the attitudes we should have during them (James 1:2). Eventually we press through because God is good and delivers us through the trial. Soon after, we reflect on God’s goodness in preserving us as He promises (Philippians 1:6) and rejoice in His kindness, goodness and faithfulness as we walk away refined.

But what about seasons of joy? When things are going well, do we still cling closely to Christ? Do we continue to find hope and peace in His word when the world doesn’t seem as hostile?

Chasia is a second-year Chemical Engineering major who enjoys building her archives of anti-humor, reading books of Puritan persuasion, sampling rare and exquisite cheeses, such as those found in Mac N Cheese and string cheese, and feasting on the Words of eternal life.

Firstly, I am so unworthy to expound on God’s immeasurable grace in my life—there are no adequate words and so meager an understanding in my heart of that inexhaustible and infinitely glorious Gospel which has somehow fallen upon my foul soul. Ephesians 1:3 wondrously reveals that God has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places; and though my heart is exceedingly far from fully glorying in—let alone comprehending—the riches of this blood-bought gift of eternal life, I nonetheless pray that we can together reflect on the following paramount theme of God’s love, of which I am the most unworthy recipient.
