God has long since been an issue to be argued. Most feel that God is the go to person to seek advice, faith and an overall understanding of why we are here on earth. Others can not bear the weight of asking God "why" and never getting an answer. Of course just because we do not get the answer in one day does not mean that God didn't hear us. It also does not mean that God is not on his way to help us or maybe he already has and we just don't see it...yet.
Faith is everywhere in our lives. It holds us up and makes us strong. It pushes us to go on and keep trying. We grow, as Christians, through faith and our belief. Sometimes we lose sight and our faith is tested. Situations arise and we are at a loss to get through them. Put your faith in God and grace will follow. Mercy has always been a tough issue. We ask for it, we believe that we deserve it. Then it almost seems like we are denied mercy. It may not be that. There may be something better out there for us. Everything happens for a reason and God always, always has a plan.
As Christians, pain comes rushing in, it seems at times. We never fully understand why. Why would our God forsake us? Why would our God leave us at such troubled times? We must understand that it is darkest before the dawn and we have to face hard times to get to better times. Each person has to deal with their own messes of life. This life is not easy and all things come at a cost. We grow through rough times and strength comes through pain. God wants us to grow and make Him proud, but He never said it would be easy. There will be tears and there will be nights of sorrow. Don't give up. You will get grace and mercy and all the things God promised.
Emotional pain is what we live with for a long time. Sometimes it feels that it will never end. The wound keeps getting reopened and stitches are no where to be found. God is your stitch. He is the glue that holds you together. He will never let you fall, He may just let you dangle so that you change your ways. There is no growth without pain. There is no gain without loss. Christians must live like this. We must know that all of our hard work will one day be rewarded with glorious gifts that only God can bring. God is on our side. He brought us here and He is our guide through this journey. He knows the ins and outs and He is not about to let us go, especially through the hardest times of our lives. Live in God and live a life of prosperity and riches beyond your wildest dreams. It is well worth it.
