When the going gets tough..

The tough are only tough if they have their faith sandwiched in with scriptures.

If you are sorrowful and your life is seemingly impossible, than take heart. Even our Lord Jesus wept, he had to go off to quiet places and pray. Sometimes praying all night. Yes, his soul was sorrowful even to the point of death. For his task was the greatest of all. To give himself, laying his very life down, so that we would all have our fill of his blood to cleanse us from our dreadful, wicked sins.

So I say again, when the going gets tough, go to the scriptures. Remember this dear gift of faith the Lord has given to his people. Look and see that there is nothing new under the sun. There is hope for us and rest for our weary souls. We have the most glorious hope of all and our God is not a man. He is not restricted by the things of the flesh and He will never die. No, in fact his Son is risen from the dead! So glory and praise be to the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost from now and forevermore!
