5 Ways to Stay Encouraged During Hard Times

hard times

Be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded. (2 Chronicles 15:7)

It’s easy to lose faith when it seems as though everything is going wrong in our lives.

When nothing seems to go as planned and we just can’t seem to get a break from God. We wonder if He even hears our cries or if He even cares.

That’s usually when the enemy will creep in and start to play tricks with our minds.

There’s an old saying. “An idle mind is the devil’s playground”. This is why it’s so important to stay in the word even when you don’t feel like God loves you. Even when you question whether or not you should even love Him.

I remember a time in my life when I wondered if I was being silly or naive for still believing in God after everything He was allowing me to go through. I mean, how could He love me and let me suffer the way I was suffering?

It seemed like as soon as I overcame one hurdle, I was dealing with another. It seemed like the only way out was to give up. Giving up would have definitely been the easy way out, but that wasn’t even an option for me.

I knew there was a purpose for my pain, a greater calling on my life, and I was determined to find it. I could have stayed down, thrown in the towel, and threw myself one huge pity party, but I didn’t.

I used my sorrows as fuel to draw closer to God because in my heart I knew that I had taken my eyes off Him and maybe just maybe all of this was to get me to come back to Him. If so, it worked!

Here are 5 Ways I have managed to stay encouraged during the hard times in my life…
