You Can Do This
God is greater.
I ant you to meditate upon that message, because let me tell you something—you can do anything when your peace is protected. When you're connected with God, nothing is impossible. More often than not, our actions and beliefs suggest that we somehow think our struggle is worse than anyone else's. We believe our problems are greater, whatever they might be, but let me tell you what's greater—God. God is greater than anything you're going through, and through God, anything is possible.
I get it—faith isn't always easy.
In my own life, losing certain things tested my faith. In fact, I even lost it at one point! I lost my love, and I lost my connection to God. That experience made me realize that my faith wasn't quite as strong as I thought it was. Whoever out there is reading this right now, I want you to think about that—sometimes, it takes losing something to realize you never had it in the first place. Listen—problems are always going to be around the corner. Struggle is a natural part of life, which is why it's so important to connect with God. Pain is inescapable, which is why it's so important to find a place of constant peace. It doesn't matter how much money you make, or how good or bad you feel your life is—you can always use a foundation. Listen—storms are going to come and go. That being said, wouldn't you rather be in a house with a strong foundation than a weak one? You can't keep storms from raging on outside, but you can change how you respond to them. You can make your house's foundation stronger.
You've already experienced so much pain, but unfortunately, I can say with certainty that you will experience more. I promise you that you will lose people and opportunities you love. You will lose people you took for granted, and you will lose opportunities you thought would be solid in the long term. Why am I telling you this? Because you have a choice. When you lose everything around you, it's up to you whether you lose yourself or not. It's up to you whether you lose your faith, your foundation, and your rock.
Let me tell you something—God is going to carry you through this. Whatever you're going through, God will get you to the other side. Whatever trial you're experiencing wouldn't be in your way unless it had the potential to make you stronger than ever, and whatever person you're losing was never meant to stay. Keep faith, because trust me—it's stronger than your storms.
