On difficult times

When we are having difficulties, we need to acquire a spirit of contrition, pray and remain patient.  We have to endure less than satisfactory circumstances because we are called to be in the world in order to undergo affliction.  However, this shouldn’t be a cause for despair, but rather, we must continue our struggle.  This is our invisible and constant battle, this is the yoke that Christ has given us.

  1. So true! Don't get ahead of God and be a Sarah or Abraham. Habakkuk 2: 2-3 God has an appointed time for everything, hold on, He'll let you know when it's time to truly move ☺
