Happy moments, PRAISE GOD. Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD. Painful moments, TRUST GOD. Every moment, THANK GOD.

My family and I are going through some tough times right now, and things are not going to get any easier in the near future I think. Amazingly enough while sitting here worrying and wondering what the future holds for me and my family, I was reminded that when walking down an unknown path that is dark and has lots of twists and turns, if you brighten that path with a little light one can see all that stands in ones way, and go a lot further down that very path.

Faith, and prayer is so very important during each trial a person might face in life. So I am going to hold out my hand and grab onto Jesus, and let him light and guide the way. He already knows where we are heading. All I need to do is trust in him to get us there safely.

My prayer for tonight as I head off to bed is a verse I saw just moments ago.

" Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts." Therefore " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." - Zechariah 4:6, Philippians 4:13

So by the Spirit of Christ I shall allow him to strengthen me, and I shall stop worrying so much about situations I have no control over.

Thank you Jesus for your love that you have always shown me, for your insight when i can not see, and your strength when I am feeling powerless. Amen

"Happy moments, PRAISE GOD. Difficult moments, SEEK GOD. Quiet moments, WORSHIP GOD. Painful moments, TRUST GOD. Every moment, THANK GOD." I have never heard this saying. Very nice.

May God give you & your family straight & guidance.

Hi Tracy,

So sorry that you are going through this difficult time. That is one of my favorite verses. My husband lost his job last year and it was very scary. Within two weeks he got it back. Pretty crazy. I was very scared for those two weeks. It felt like the rug was pulled out from under us. Thanks for sharing your struggles with us.
