"I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world."

~ Deuteronomy 31:6 ~
It was during these days that I felt God’s presence the most – that He helped me get through this…I can’t get mad at God…God’s all I had through this. He’s who I had to rely on the most. Getting mad at Him wouldn’t have done any good.
Most importantly, I learned how powerful and how great our God is that we serve, and the power of prayer, and how God answers – not always the timing we want but in His own time.
" 29 He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
30 Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint."
~ Isaiah 40:29-31 ~
