Those bad days seem so long though, don't they? Believe me, I know all about them. There were some days that I didn't think I would make it through, but God sustained me and He ensured I came out in tact. I would lie if I said they were easy days though. Yet, I know that looking towards the Light and not having anything to do with the darkness was what got me through. I'm so thankful I am able to encourage you today to stay the course. I encourage you, because I know about hard and difficult days, believe me. And I encourage you, because I know you will make it through too when you choose the road of goodness -- when you choose the road of God. He's going to be with you and He's going to make sure you come out on top. I'm a living witness to that, I'm telling you. I might not be doing everything I want to be doing right now, but I'm on top, because God is in my life. And when God is in your life, you are winning.
So, I'm here to tell you once again, that you're going to make it through and you will be able to speak life to any situation. Proverbs 4:10-12 says "accept my words, that the years of your life may be many. I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness. When you walk, your step will not be hampered, and if you run, you will not stumble." That's what the Lord is saying to you. Uh huh, that's what He's saying to all of us. It doesn't matter what you're going through, keep looking forward. You're going to make it through. You really will. You're going to make it through.
