In the midst of it all, just remember that we see throughout scripture that Jesus has experienced each of these hard times as well during His ministry on earth. Stand firm on His promises:
"For those who wait on the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles; they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:31
"My brothers and sisters, when you have many kinds of troubles, you should be full of joy, because you know that these troubles will test your faith, and this will give you patience. Let your patience show itself perfectly in what you do. Then you will be perfect and complete and will have everything you need." James 1:2-4
"Be strong and brave, because you will lead these people into the land the Lord promised to give their ancestors, and help them take it as their own. The Lord Himself will go before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forget you. Don't be afraid and don't worry." Deuteronomy 31:7-8
As I witness people choosing to give their lives to Christ and are allowing Him to transform them, it makes every trial fade away. In the midst of the hard times, keep running the race and keep your eyes on the prize....another life getting to experience the intimate love of their very creator!
