GETTING TOUGH

going-through-hell

The world is full of a lot of unhappiness and many people aren’t even sure they will have enough money to make it to the next pay check – if there is one. The economy seems like it’s in the pits. Work is hard to find. So what is a person to do?  We could moan and complain about our problems. We could drown our sorrows with alcohol or drugs. Or we could go to our heavenly Father and ask for His help.

God sometimes sends these tough times into our lives so that we remember who is in control, and like the prodigal son, return to Him when there is no other way out. Maybe if we didn’t wait so long to communicate with Him, the troubles would be less, but I believe that God allows them so that we always know that He is there to help. When things get tough, we should arm ourselves with the breastplate of righteousness and get tough too.

God will give us the stamina, the resources, the promise, the Savior, the right path, the answers and all that will get us back on track.  When things get tough, the tough get tougher.
