Well guys, life happens.

Just because we believe in God, and because we have been saved by Christ, doesn’t mean that life is going to be easy. In fact, it pretty much guarantees that we are going to go through trials. Whether it’s that math test, your grades, dating troubles, a death, or something else, we are going to have things pop up in life that are difficult for us.

At times, it may feel like life is weighing us down. Those trials and tribulations are too much to handle.

But that’s not true! Some verses I’ve taken comfort in recently are, as usual, Philippians 4:13:

“I can do all things through Him who gives me strength”

and Hebrews 13:5:

“…I will never leave you nor forsake you”

God is there for us, even in the toughest of times. Something that definitely relates to this is a poem called “Footprints in the Sand.” If you have never read it, do. Seriously. This poem is such an encouragement. And if you have read it, read it again!

Think about that for a little while. Even if it seems like no matter how much we pray, how much we ask God to help us through and He isn’t doing anything about it, He is! You may not be able to see God working in your life sometimes, but know that He is always there and in control.

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we cannot see” ~Hebrews 11:1

Even when it seems like God isn’t there, we have to have faith that He is. Looking back on rocky times in life, I realize now just how many little blessings God put into my life, even when I had sort of turned away from Him for a while. He was still there. He still cared. He carried me through.

When life gets you down, keep praying. Have faith. Our God is always in control. He will help you through whatever you are going through. Life happens. But God is always there for us.

Over and out,
