Faith Through Struggles

No matter how much it hurts now, someday you will look back and realize your struggles changed your life for the better.
~ Unknown Author ~

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: through it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
~ Habakkuk 2:3-4

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well in your world. I’m enjoying the summer having mind numbing fun after my day at the circus. (grin)

Praise the Lord for hobbies and opportunities to unwind. (smile)

It’s been wahoo, something to do that helps me get through the day, as well as, God’s grace. Thank you Lord.

There are times, we must lighten up and remember the faithfulness of the Lord. Every struggle, He will walk us through. The just shall live by faith.

Day in and day out; week in and week out; month in and month out. Yup, year in and year out. Faith through struggles teach and change something for the better.

There will always be something or someone that _________. Keep walking. The just shall live by faith.

When we focus on what we see, ugh, the mind wanders and we speak to what is seen. Thus, putting faith in the struggle. (shock face)

Here’s the thing, have faith and believe in God. There is nothing too hard for Him.

Faith believes God is working in the background of the situation. The just shall live by faith.

God can put a vision within us with patience and faith to endure. It will come in his timing. The just shall live by faith.

Maybe today. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe next week. Get ready. The just shall live by faith.

Blessings, my friends as the just shall live by faith.

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

“Faith believes God is working in the background of the situation.” Yes! And amen. I love the story of Daniel’s 21 day fast when we learn that from day one, God had angels fighting in the heavenliness on Daniel’s behalf. Until the day we can see what’s going on in that realm, we have to keep believing it is.

The butterfly emerging from the chrysalis has to struggle. This struggle causes the blood to pump through its wings so that it can soar.
with Christ, nothing is impossible, as we trust in him.
we learn to trust and believe. Mountains crumble and we soar!
