         HOLDING ON TO GOD. 

       Once in a while in life, situations, circumstances and happenings around you just make you feel like God are you still there? Trials begin to come in from left right and center. And you may feel like why is everything just happening to me at once. Well the truth is at such delicate, stressful or even painful moments, the devil tries to get you to focus on everything that is going wrong around you and keep you focused on all the things you should worry about. He makes you hold on to the worries so much, you begin to loose hope and your words become negative. Like when people ask how is the situation instead of saying "God is in control", you begin to feel so sorry about yourself and helpless you say things like "We are just managing" or " I really don't know". When faced with such challenges, this is not the time to give in to the devil and all his schemes. This is neither a time to doubt God. This is neither a time to be led by the way you feel. The bible lets us know that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. So even if you cannot see your miracle or break through yet, even if you cannot see a way out yet, even if you feel like the door has been shut towards you finally, never stop having faith and confessing the word of God. The word of God is life. There is power in what we speak. So i encourage you to speak life to every dead situation. Do not converse or relate with people who will only tell you "AIYA" "SORRY" "THIS LIFE IS NOT FAIR". Be around people who will remind you and speak the word of God to you. You only loose when you give in, when you throw in the towel and stop trying. Even if your faith is like a mustard seed, it will surely move mountains. When next you are asked about that difficult situation, tell them all is well and all will be well in Jesus name.   Don't cry because the battle is the lords. And if God fights for you, you are a winner. Keep your eyes on God. And remember all is well in Jesus name. AMEN!!!
Below are some bible passages to hold on to Psalms 46:1 "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble."  Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (NIV) Philippians 4:6-7 
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NIV)

   After spending a night at the hospital, I have come to the conclusion that life and everything it entails is a gift. It is not a right or something that just happens by coincidence. Seeing so many people in pain and distress made me appreciate those things we consider little and normal or even a right. 
                         Recently I have been asking God if miracles really exist because I have been trusting him for a miracle for quite some time now. And in between all my mixed feelings of anger, sadness and confusion, a voice inside me told me waking up every morning is a miracle. Sleeping through the night in peace without pain or discomfort is a miracle. walking, talking, eating, and even reading comfortably is a miracle. Virtually everything is a miracle.
                         I was so bent on getting the big miracle that I could no longer realize the little miracles God gives to us on a daily basis. So I decided to write and encourage someone out there who is trusting God for a big miracle. Keep thanking him for the little miracles and trust him for the big one. Do not let the devil get in your head. God is God and he owes us no explanations for how things turn out, but he expects us to keep trusting him and believing in him. The truth is sometimes trusting God can be so hard when the situation at ground is so big and tedious, but I choose to believe and to trust in the power of God which is bigger than every situation. When difficulties arise and life's problems want to weigh you down, hold on steadfastly to God. And don't forget the fact that you are still breathing is a miracle! Where there is life there is hope. where there is life there is hope. So hold on just a little longer!! Our hope is built on nothing less than the solid rock!!!
