Are You Discouraged?

This economic downswing that has forced itself upon us is creating havoc with our emotions. Our positive attitude so prevalent in the past has been attacked by discouragement as we face the future. 

On a personal note, I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that that God is going to help you through your present struggle. 

The Bible says in: John 16:33 - These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. 

There are times when all of us are confronted with difficulties and circumstances which are often beyond our control or ability to "fix". This is where our faith in God is tested, and if we continue to hold on to the promises of God, He is sure to bring us to the other side of the situation in victory. While things around you may be looking bleak at this present time, you may want to take comfort in a scripture out of: Psalm 30:5 - For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. 

I want to encourage you to hold on to your faith in God. He WILL bring you out on the other side... He WILL allow the sun to come out in the "morning", and you will be forever grateful that you continued to trust even in spite of difficulty.
