Better Is Coming

It is not easy to go through trials and tribulations in life.  It is when we are going through our trials and tribulations that we can feel like we are going through them all alone, and it can feels like The Lord is abandoning us.  It is in those difficult times of life, that we must remember that we are not going through this alone, and that The Lord will never leave us or forsake us.  We should also remember that many times in the midst of our trials and tribulations that The Lord is preparing us for greater things, and for things that are in front of us that we have not even seen yet.

The Scripture reminds us that, for the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.  I encourage you today to remember that what you are going through may seem difficult right now, but it will produce something greater in your future.  You may feel weak right now, but what you are facing is actually building your strength.  You may feel defeated right now, but what you are facing is preparing you for your victory.  It may not feel pleasant right now, but later you will experience the joy of enduring the things that The Lord is doing in your life. There are times when I feel like I am all alone and even The Lord has abandoned me, but then I quickly realize that The Lord is always with me and will never forsake me, and He is preparing me for great things.

Since I know that what I am facing my not be pleasant now, I also know that The Lord has great things prepared for my life this is why I am confident, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”


Lord give me strength to endure the moment, so I can enjoy the blessings that are on the way.  In Jesus Name Amen.
