Holding on to your faith despite your circumstances.
By: Taren Vaughan
Life is just like a roller coaster. When everything is going well, you feel like you are on top of the world; things couldn’t get any better. Then all of a sudden, things take a turn for the worst. It often seems like the sun will never shine again. Everyone experiences both good and bad times in their lives but the most important thing to do is to hold on to your faith even when it seems like your world is coming to end.
When things are going well for us, sometimes we forget that we still need to continuously give praise to God for the blessings that he has placed in our lives. When everything is perfect in our eyes, some of us see no need to continue praying about our situations because everything seems to be working out just fine.
Now here comes the storm. As soon as it hits us, that’s when we pray until we can’t pray anymore. We pray so hard for God to remove us from the situation, take all the pain and hurt away but you have to wait out your storm. We go through hard times in life but God does this only to make us stronger, wiser and give us the ability to be there for someone who may be going through the exact same thing you are.
By keeping your faith at all times, you are showing God that you do trust in him and that you know he will not place more on you than you can handle. Thank God for your trials and tribulations and trust that he will get you through your storms. Remember, “Trouble don’t last always”.
