IT WILL PASS........


Every trial, every adversity is a defining moment in our lives. Those difficulties can either hold us back, or they can propel us forward into the good things God has for us. We decide how those things will affect our lives by the attitude we choose. If we choose to be bitter and upset constantly complaining about what's happening, we aren't going to get very far. But if we choose to have a positive attitude of faith, if we choose to find joy even in the midst of our trials, we can move forward in His peace and joy. Today, make up your mind that no matter what comes your way, no matter how long it takes, or impossible it looks, you are in it for the long haul. Don't give up your passion! Press past discouragement because victory is already on the way. Are you in a difficult season right now? Maybe you have plenty of reasons to be sour and live down and discouraged. Perhaps you're struggling in your finances or you don't feel well physically. Maybe a relationship is giving you trouble. It would be easy to settle there and think, "You know what? Forget it. It's not going to work out." But, I've found that in order to be everything God has created us to be, we've got to dig our heels in and say, "I have come too far to stop now. It may be tough. It may be taking a long time. I may not understand it but I do know this: my God is still on the Throne and what He promised He will bring to pass."
