Tough Times

Sometimes... life gets really hard. It weighs down upon my shoulders and I feel like the pressure is going to crush me. I'll cry and ask God to help me out; to help lift the burden. I go through a lot of hurts and pains, but I always seem to forget that God loves me. He doesn't give me anything I can't handle. Everything that happens in my life he has a purpose for. It strengthens me and helps me to grow stronger in Him. It's hard to remember, but through those times of struggles... trust God. He knows what he's doing.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
- James 1:2-4

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
-Romans 8:28

  1. This was very encouraging!
    It reminded me of what I have been reading in the book of Job. Job didn't give up his faith in God even in the really tough times and God blessed him in the end.
    God bless you and keep writing!
