Be more encouraged when times are rough. Be more in tuned with God. Do not succumb to the surrounding circumstances. There is a lesson to be learned by any and everything that you experience. So many fall away from God when they are being tested. No, we must do the opposite, run towards God as fast as we can. Continue to give. Continue to shout the Lords name. Continue to move in the spirit. God will not leave or forsake you. Trust and believe that with all your heart. Peace will come through those storms. Tranquility will reside where turmoil was. Our God is a steadfast God. His time is his. Not ours. Remember to keep you mind body and soul open for his signs. Your path is always lit. Stay on it.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
