Whadda ya gonna do about it?

When completely overwhelmed with life and the trials it throws your way, there is a struggle to not fall into complete despair.  Knowing that it is precisely these times in life when the devil tries to take his due, the effort is worth every ounce of intellect and will to fight the spiritual battle, even if it leaves you exhausted.  Yet, there are very dark times when God seems so far away and you feel left alone, betrayed even, because of the stress.  What can you do?


Pray...Even if it seems as though God is not answering you.

Pray...Even when you think there is just not enough time to even get your daily tasks done, let alone be still and on your knees long enough to communicate with Jesus.

Pray...Even when you feel as though God has let you down.

Pray...Even when it seems the whole world is against you and you think there is nothing you can do to change the situation.

Pray...Even when you fail to see the upside to the fact your body is failing you.

Just pray.
