In the midst of your trouble-know you are blessed.

Don't stop believing imageEven though you may be in a dark place right now fighting and struggling I am here to tell you not to feel defeated. What you think is a place of great difficulty may actually be a place where you are starting to get some wonderful breakthroughs that will lead you towards a new opportunity or blessing.

You may not see the end road or any light to show you the way out of the darkness yet God has a plan and a purpose. You are being Divinely guided towards a new direction that will bring you closer towards all that you are seeking. You may feel stuck and that you are not receiving your breaks but this is just the time when you should be counting all the blessings you have right now. Even when you don't see a way out, find something to be thankful for in your life. Counting your blessings has far greater benefits than counting your problems and hardships. It is most humbling when we can look at our lives and see the blessings that we are experiencing right now. We only need one touch of God's favor to get us into the glory. God says, stay in faith and I will turn your difficulties into your joy. Never forget His words: "The battle is the Lords, the victory is mine."

Believe that the hand of God is upon you! Don't doubt that truth and appreciate what you are living with at this moment. When you face tough times, you need to remember that you are being shown a purpose that will make you stronger and then molded in such a way so that you are better positioned to shine.

Stay encouraged don't fight God because He is directing your steps. Instead of getting discouraged and feeling defeated, prepare yourself for a better tomorrow. Acknowledge the blessings that you have right now and express your gratitude. Don't think small or lack think confidence think positive and think and know that God has a plan far greater than you can possibly imagine.

Keep your eyes forward if you want to reach the next joy for your destiny. Trouble is inevitable we all go through it but it is up to you to rise above it and not let it destroy you. Don't let your present situation sour your mind or spirit. You are bigger than that and so is your God. So once again, may I suggest don't look at the darkness as defeat but rather a re-direction of your life. It is to place you on the right tract.
