Even in my darkest hour, God is present.

Dearest Brothers and Sisters:

In each one our lives, we will all go through challenging situations that shake our existence and cause us to question our faith in God. But to have a fulfilled and fruitful life, we must find the strength to always trust in and depend upon God. Faith is total trust and dependence on God in all circumstances without limitations, conditions, boundaries or exclusions. God is the head of every part of me and my life. It is the process of giving myself completely to God and continually placing Jesus Christ as the Lord of my life.

In Hebrews Chapter 11, God says: 11:1Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  But without faith it is impossible to please him (God): for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 

Even in my darkest hour, God is present. Because I believe in Jesus Christ, I am confident that He will lead me safely through the challenges in my life that I do not understand. I trust God to do with me as He wills to fulfill His Will and Purpose. I cannot please or serve God without a strong and abiding faith in Jesus Christ. I know that I may continue to suffer, but I know that God is blessing me daily because I diligently seek Him.
