We all go through our ups and downs in life. All at different times and our struggles are different from one another. But, they are still there. We fight battles that no one realizes we are fighting, but yet, we stand strong, we smile, we show up when needed. Even through times, when we feel all is lost and we just want to give up. But one day out of the blue, you see the sky again and the troubles are just another stepping stone. These are the times when I cling to Jesus the hardest. I always feel the lord puts us through these trials to guide us to turn to him. To teach us that we need him. We don’t have to struggle alone. Turn to him, praise him through the hard times, and praise him more when you make it through the storm. The most difficult times in our lives are what shapes and forms us. These times are what molds us into the person the lord created us to be. It’s just up to us on how we handle it. So for me, I pray and praise through the storm. And I pray and praise after the storm. Because when the lord pulls me through, I know it will be my turn!
