Discipline is rarely fun, however it is necessary for growth.
In difficult seasons, despite the circumstance, look to Yahweh and declare that He is your God. Don’t look at the present lacks or stressors, they will only haze your vision. Instead, be strong, press in, and trust in Him; Remember your future is in His hands!
Sometimes it’s just about faith. There comes seasons in life when we don’t understand what God is doing or why we are going through such trails, but maybe the point isn’t to understand. Maybe the point is to trust, have faith, and remain faithful. Trust that He is God. Have faith that He will bring you through. Remain faithful to Him, never looking to your left or to your right. Instead, stay focused on Him; remaining in His will, completely surrendered.
“Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
-1 Thessalonians 5:16-18-
