When Life Hits Hard...

There are times in life when it seems like nothing is going the way we want. We work hard, do the right things and try our best to avoid associating with the wrong people. In spite of our efforts, it seems people who couldn't care less about hardwork get all the perks, they get the good things in life and we are left to wonder what the real formula for a successful life is.

It's easy to sink into depression when things aren't going well for us. We tend to avoid hanging out with people, we over-eat, we find conversations with people laborious and sometimes we find ourselves crying for no reason. I know because I've been there and for months, I didn't know how to get out.
 
My bible is right by my bed side, but on those days it was the last book I felt like reading. It took a lot of courage to get out of that place, it took a lot of prayers and simply rebuilding my faith like I was building a house all over from scratch. It took speaking to friends and family, and simply laying my burdens on God. Truth be told, I still find myself returning to that place sometimes, but now I'm armed with God's promises.

If you're going through a hard time, I just want to encourage you. God knows your every burden, He is aware of your pain. God's not dead, nor is he asleep. He's at work in your life. The harder your battle, the bigger the respite that's coming. Hang in there, don't lose hope. I'm not writing this from the position of someone who has everything, hence finds it easy to write this kind of message. I'm fighting a battle just like you are, and I want you to know God knows! God knows all things, sees all things and fights all our battles. If you're feeling down and out, knocked down and broken, turn to God. Read his promises in Psalm 37. Your breakthrough is on the way! Remember the last mile is always the hardest in a race.
 
Don't give up; stay blessed. Xoxo
