God is my source for everything. Trust that He is the Lord of creation and can get you through this- lean not on your own understanding. When I am down and discouraged, I have a Psalm like to read. It helps comfort me and lets me know, I am not in this situation alone. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation. Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.
Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust him and he will help you. Day by day the Lord takes care of the innocent, and they will receive an inheritance that lasts forever. They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
I ask that everyone that reads this keeps me lifted in prayer. I born again believer, recently accepted Christ as my everything. Thank you for taking the time to write this article. Today I had finally excepted god as my savor but I to have hard times with temptation and I feel at my weakest with everything going on in my life lately.
But I really do like your choose of strong words. I hope everything goes well and may this new year be a positive life change for the better. Florence, please take suicide off the table and do not consider it. Jesus died for your sins; do not reject that by taking your own life. What would become of your baby? Turn to and rely solely on the Lord. Pray fervently and earnestly that He will open doors for you, and that you will have a clear path to employment and some financial security.

My world was turned upside down three years ago with a perfect storm of events. We are still struggling every day. The death of my precious dog set off this chain of events. My mother was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. My son decided it was time to end his ten year marriage. Mother died after 8 months and went to be with the Lord. I handled the estate in the manner in which my mother intended.
My conscience is clear. His father had it before him and for 47 years it had provided a very good living to two generations. My husband contemplated suicide. The hits just keep coming. I pray for mercies and grace to help us crawl out from under this mess. It has been three years. I know this burden will not take me down because I know God will not give me more than I can handle. I pray for the courage and faith to simply let go and let God. It is a walk of faith and a surrender of any ideas I might have had that I am in control.
Florence, I hope your situation has improved. Please put your faith in God and pray with every fiber of your being that doors of opportunity will open. I will pray for you also. God bless you for your wonderful message to the world. By the discovering of your website, I have also learnt to keep up the faith and be steadfast so that the glory of God would be shown around the life of his children. I think this shows a lot of growth and maturity in your faith walk, the realisation that enduring faith is a moment by moment experience which needs re-affirming through good and bad.
I recently had this realisation myself but worded it a bit differently, I said:. Please pray for me, I am going through depression and stress, I feel that I failed in life and the Lord. Cause I made bad decisions. That I wish I can changes. Now my life might be on the line. Please Pray that God can get me through this, sometimes I feel like just ending my life.
The greatest thing in life is to always remember that God is with us and he will never abandon us. Lets keep doing good at every opportunity and thank God in all circumstances.

Trials, temptations and tough times will always come and go. It took Joseph 16 years to see his dream come true, and this happenned in a foreign land where he never thought he will set feet even in his dreams. It took the woman with the issue of blood many years to battle with her disconfort but when her time was due a second was too long for her to completely heal without even requesting for it verbally. A second, a month, a minute or a year are just a period of time. Lets keep our faith high and God who is the master of circumstances will set us free.
We just have to surrender to him and the rest will be history. Although I do try to keep Faith in trials, temptation, and tough times, sometimes I would like to have a break. If not my whole life, then the greater majority of it, which makes it more profound than any breaks, if indeed there were any. My sufferings have always been over-lapping from as far back as the age of memory. Yes, there were some happy or light occasions, but they were always over-shadowed by some kind of difficulty or challenge.
Yet, I realize that what I went through and what I am going through, is not as terrible as unfortunately some others have to deal with in their lives. By praying and believing. Asking god to help me believe when my faith is very weak as it is now. I am experiencing a lot of doubt and tempted to just want to throw in the towel.

Hi Robin… How are things? Satan will try to convince you of many things, but remember he is called the Father of Lies for a reason. Have you ever read the book The Bait of Satan? I needed to hear this today. I have been going through a tough time in my life. I keep praying and fighting to do gods will. I know God has great things for us and his blessing is all over us. Staten is a liar and thief trying to steel our joy and blessings. Power is real and so is the battle. Thank u so much fo words and testimonies on living by faith during hard times..
Amen, and thank you Godfrey! God provides for our needs and prepares us in all the right ways. He is faithful indeed. Please keep me in your prayers. I am at the lowest point in my life as I have ever been. Please pray for him. Please pray that God will open his heart, give him the faith to trust Him, save him, and give him the strength he needs to face these battles.

Holy Spirit please comfort and keep KJo with Your power, strength and love flowing through her. Lord Jesus let her and her son be more than conquerors in life right now in Your precious name. Father God please take her burdens and move Your strong right arm for her and her son.

Keeping faith in trials, temptations and tough times
In the name of Jesus please have mercy on her and her son. KJo, I hope that you can enlist others to help with your situation and your son. If you are facing his death and it can be prevented use others stronger than you to help. If your son is on drugs there are streetwise people who can FORCE him to stop and cut him off from his supply.
Keep praying, everyone prayer for her please and Lord have mercy on what sounds like an awful situation. Pick her up and carry her Jesus! Elizabeth this is so beautiful! Thank you for joining in to pray for KJo, your gift of prayer and encouragement is a true blessing. Your recent comment drew me here, to this comment specifically, and I thank you for that. Dear KJo, Thank you so much for reaching out with this prayer request. How are you and your son today? God hears the prayers of our hearts. He listens to us when we cry out to Him. It says in Hebrews 4: Please know that I will be praying for you and will post for more prayer on the facebook page.
Lifting you up in prayer!! Our sister in law is in stage 4 cancer and my brother is surviving prostate cancer. I have always been the strong one who has given Biblical verse and encouragement…. I know I am not alone and there are friends praying for me and my family, but I need something to hold on to. Love how God works like that!
He gives us what we need when we need it. God bless you Kim. Thank you for the encouragement! No time to quit! I came across this encouraging piece whilst having my quiet time this morning. I was warned of spiritual attack, but I was adamant now that I was wearing the armour of God I would somehow get through them better than anyone else!
But the trials kept on coming! My then church disapproved of my forming a relationship with one of their male congregation. They made it so difficult that, in the end, we sadly left. My friends were falling dramatically by the wayside. Little hurts and disappointments made by those I thought were my nearest and dearest. From two, huge social circles I now, thankfully, have 2 special girls remaining.
The biggest blessing that has come out of these trials is now my husband! No man or church can interfere with the plans that God has in mind for you and for that I am grateful. As I sign off now; I feel God giving me a new hope and a new strength for the future and I thank you again for an inspiring post. Thanks for sharing this. You touch on an interesting point that sometimes in all the trials we miss the great little or no so little things God is doing in our lives. Thanks for that reminder today. You are in my prayers!

Field of Blessing - Beyond Understanding: Holding on to faith in circumstances beyond understanding
This site is awesome for me. I have suffered anxiety and fear most of my life and this site helps me deal with it. I have dealt with addictions all my life and am now in recovery. This site will help me maintain my sobriety and led me to increase my involvement in ministries at my parish. I also read books on this topic, recently one about resisting happiness.
I am thankful for the encouragement I get on this site. Keep praying, keep faith, keep reading the living word. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. My name is Lebogang Sishuba.
