The Lord has truly been good to me, no matter the valleys, the storms, or any form of tribulation. God is still great! I lean on God’s understanding and not that of my own. The Lord is my refuge where I can hide from my enemies until He takes care of them. He is my friend and comforter when no one else will talk to me and for that I give Him the praise!! Trust and know that God has your back in every situation. Think about it this way… if you are on a journey in your car and you come to a bump, pot hole, hill, or mountain, you need to have the gas (faith) to get through whatever is in front of you to get to your destination, which is your reward. If you don’t have gas to get through the obstacles, you don’t deserve the reward!
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. – James 1:2
