Never Would Have Made It

As we continue to navigate through these difficult economic times and more people share their testimonies with me as to how God is keeping them, I'm reminded of just how far He has brought me, and I have to stop a moment and pray, "Father, truly, I never would have made it without you."  As I look back I marvel at how He was able to carry me through my trials ... and bring me out even stronger than I was before.

The important thing that I want to share with you is that if He could do it for me, then He's able to do it for you too.  It doesn't matter what you're going through -- job loss, debt, loss of a companion, persecution, loneliness -- don't despair and never give up.  Keep pressing.  If you can just have faith and cast your cares upon Him He's able to bring you through it all. The old folks used to say, "Trouble don't last always."  Know that the light at the edge of darkness is coming.  Pray, read, fast, meditate, and believe.  He's working your situation out for you even as you read this.

My prayer is that your deliverance comes soon and that He graces you with divine patience until your change is come.

I look forward to reading your testimony of how God worked it all out for you.
