When is your darkest hour? Mine regulary occurs in my dreams. I am not saying my dreams have any significant meaning. I know that god can bring you out of every situation.
Our darkest hours comes when we hide from God those things which makes us human. We tend to say no one understands. These are things which the enemy uses to enslave us and keeps us from being the true person God intended for us to be.
My darkest hour came out of trials. I had a very stressful family situation. My love life was stressful and my boss was giving me problems on my jobs. I felt so hopeless I didnt know what to do.
I became face to face with my own self, and realized there were things in my life that I had not recovered from and they continued to plague my thoughts.
Each day, I went into self pity and thought god had forgotten me and I never received the things he has promised me.
As I went into the house of the Lord, I felt more despondent than ever. I didn't know what to do. I felt a great pull on my soul. It was so strong at that moment, I didn't care whether I lived or died.
As I tried to hold onto sanity and my life. God told me he loves me and to fight!
I realized I put down my weapons and I almost forgot how to fight. I allowed my emotions to weaken me. I had to allow god to teach me how to fight once again.
Sometimes this is your test!
