I’m not proud to admit it, but i’m not always a strong Christian. I don’t pray and read the bible as consistently as I always should either.
Also, I am noticing that the times when I do become a good Christian, is especially when tough times arrive. When I feel all helpless and alone. These times are also the best times of my walk with God. These times are when I really go down on my knees and pray like i’ve never prayed before, begging Him for strength, wisdom and mercy. And its times like this when I look back, I don’t particularly enjoy those times of trials, but if that is what makes my walk with God a whole lot closer, Lord, I’d honestly rather you never give me an easy time in life. Make my relationship with you a very special and extraordinary one. Use and mold me please.
“Even in laughter the heart may ache, and rejoicing may end in grief.”
Proverbs 14:13 NIV
