Faith…Enduring Difficulties

I won’t give up! I won’t give in! I’ll keep my head up and I will win!

If you are like me, then you hate going through difficult situations; trauma, abuse, theft, mental anguish, and hopelessness. These are what I call the difficult aspect of an otherwise beautiful life.

No one is immune to it. No matter your culture, skin color, economic status, sexual orientation, or gender. It doesn’t even matter if you are a child or an adult. Life happens to us all.

How should we as human beings endure hurt, pain, and suffering? One way of doing so is to have faith. Faith that the difficulty is only temporary. Faith that the difficulty is in our lives for a specific reason. Faith that we will grow and come out better as a result of the difficult situation.

There is a scripture in the book of Psalms that says: “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5, second part) That means that there is always light at the end of the tunnel for those who have faith.

“I won’t give up! I won’t give in! I’ll keep my head up and I will win!”
