"But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings;" (2 Corinthians 6:4-5 NKJV) God never said being a Christian, or even doing the right thing in general, was going to be easy. In fact, when you read The Holy Bible, many were persecuted, tortured, and even killed for doing the right thing. It takes patience, strength, fortitude, and reliance on God. But, the good news is this...God never said you had to go it alone. He say, "lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20b NKJV) God is always there to lean on and be our rock and our pillar...He wants that! Hallelujah! Amen.!
