During March of 2011, I wrote my reasons why I struggle living in this human experience. I listed why my personal interactions when world events dictated action directed not by human character but from the Word of God. Things havenít change. Money drives human behavior than the desire to increase life for a better cause.
I did learn under such duress, God stretches the human spirit through trials and tribulations. We hear stories during bible study or talking with friends at diner of someone experiencing hardship due to unemployment, which leads to home foreclosure and family break up. You think to yourself, where is God. How is this strengthening oneís faith? I donít have the answer only the pain of hopelessness.
I pray when it appears God is absent, or fails to deliver me from hopelessness. Itís better to praise God through prayer than focusing on my problem. If youíre not praising for what you have youíre distressing and in days like theses, nothing but praise keeps my mind in a safe place.
