Is Life Hard for You Right Now?

Hey, hey, my dear reader! 

How are you doing? 

I'm praying that you are alright, but if you aren't I'm hoping this blog post will touch your heart so that you may have comfort and strength.

Some say we are going through some difficult times right now. Is that so for you?

Are you having a hard time?

Are you in imminent danger?

Are you losing everything?

Do you still have everything but, you are afraid you will lose everything?

What is the absolute worst thing that could happen? 

What are you worried about?

These are very important questions!

The reason I ask these questions is because I'd like to help you confront fears, and maybe point you towards relief.

Please stay with me. I understand that words can make a person angry when they are stressed but, I'll be asking you to consider some things. Words cannot relieve suffering, and I understand that too but, opening yourself to pondering some things may.

There was a time in my life when I lost, what seemed like nearly everything.

That was a long, long time ago, and I know I am a much better person for the experience. In other words, I have come a long way, and learned a lot because of the spiritual growth.

I believe with all my heart and soul that sometimes life gives us hard times, and although it seems we will not survive, we actually come out better for it.

Please stay with me! 

Every soul on earth goes through emotional, and mental struggles. This struggle can feel like we are going to die. Can you remember a time, before this, that you've felt this kind of sorrow?

It doesn't necessarily help to go back to the suffering, but it does help to consider how you've grown, and learned from it.

Have you contemplated the thought that we go through trials for our emotional, and mental strengthening? 

Have you pondered most of us turn to God when things are difficult and not when things are good?

What if we never go through hardship, and never turn to God, and never expand spiritually?

What if we go through sorrow, turn to God, and are strengthened spiritually?

When we turn to God, and receive comfort and strength, are we not lifted emotionally and mentally?

When we turn to God, and are lifted emotionally, and mentally, do we not discover how real He is?

Heavenly Father is likened to a loving parent that allows his or her child to go through life experiences, knowing that this child is smart and strong, and will figure it all out. Also, knowing that this child will be resilient and self-sufficient for these experiences.

Human conditioning sometimes teaches us that we can't handle things but, we really can. Human conditioning sometimes teaches us to be afraid of the future, and this fear can make a person crazy with stress.

Stress is the number one cause of every illness! 

Stress is the culprit of insecurity, and thoughtless reactions.

Confidence is the gateway to thoughtful solutions of all problems.

Human conditioning sometimes trains us up in fear, aka stress. Spirituality is the emotional, and mental growth that is required to sustain faith, the opposite of stress.

Spiritual growth can, and will teach us that we can work the faith over fear out in our mind. Spiritual growth will teach us that we can, in fact, turn to Heavenly Father, on our knees and ask Him for His help. When that help comes, we expand spiritually through our experience of faith.

If you are having a hard time, I would like to encourage you, with all the love in my heart.

This is what I know for sure!

God loves you, cares for you, and is giving you all good things for your spiritual expansion. 

You can know this too by turning to your Heavenly Father, and asking Him for comfort and strength.

You can also know this by giving thought to the lesson of life. In my humble experience, the lesson has always, always, always been faith, patience, and trust.

Faith in God, that He is in charge, and that He is right there with all of us, at all times. We just have to reach for Him.

Patience is the practice.

Trust in God, and yourself that you can, and will handle 'it'. Whatever 'it' is.

Faith, patience, and trust my dear friend!

I have a scriptural prayer, held tight in my heart for you, and it is that you will know:

"The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace." ~Exodus 14:14, The Holy Bible, KJV

The Lord has fought, and fights for you and me. Let us continue to reach for Him in purposeful prayer, and never give up!

God bless you my dear reader.

Ever praying for your comfort, faith, patience, strength and trust. 

Speak soon...
