It Made Sense When I Was Thinking It.

"Hope deferred makes the heart sick: but when the desire is fulfilled, it is a tree of life." 
~ Proverbs 13:12  

Have you ever felt 'sick at heart'?  Everyone faces the times of testing; the painful trials of life will come.  Do not view troubles as insurmountable.  Do not see hardship as the end.  Do not view your pain a permanent situation.  Certainly, do not view your situation as a personal attack.  No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man.  1 Cor. 10:13   The  Valley of the Shadow of Death does not care who passes through it, but know this: it is for passing through, not for remaining in. 

It is a blessing to know when hard times try our hearts we can stand with God in faith and with patience and He will bring the answer just as He promised if we faint not.  If it takes a day or a lifetime, when the desire is fulfilled your heart will be healed and overflowing with gladness.  The pain will be gone and your joy will be full as sure as if it had happened in the first hour.  Stand.  Having done all, stand.

"If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small." ~ Proverbs 24:10
" not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises." ~ Hebrews 6:12

The ball is in your court. 

Sorry this is so short, sloppy and abrupt. It's late and I'm tired.  Be strong.  Be blessed.  Good night.

When I looked over this, I decided I want to clarify one thing... sometimes attacks ARE personal. There is an enemy. I meant to say that not all attacks should be made "about me" and taken so personally. It's just an obstacle. How could we be overcomers if there were no obstacles? :D
