Life Can Get Hard at Times
I got married in 1987 to my beautiful Panamanian wife, with who we had Eight Children together, four boys and four girls.
Life was good, I was making a lot of money with my business and we just bought a house in 1990.
Then, a few years in 1997, everything changed!
I lost my business, then my house, then in1999 my ten-year old saved son passed away on my wifes birthday!
It continued getting even worse as the years went by, too personal to share with you.
But KNOW that my wife and I KNOW what it means to suffer for a LONG time!
“Though He Slay me, Yet will I Trust in Him”
These are the words that the righteous man Job spoke after all his children had died in one day!
AND after this his body was covered with painful boils from head to toe for months!
My wife and I thought of Job a LOT while we were going thru our problems.
Hear Job cry out from the depths of his soul!
“Oh that I were as in months past, as in the days when God preserved me;” Job 29
Did you know the sickness that Job had lasted for months?!
I am sure Job wondered if there was any hope after all of these things came upon him.
But then, one day, God turned everything around for Job!
“And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.”
“Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the LORD had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold.”
“So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses.”
“He had also seven sons and three daughters.”
This Too Shall Pass!
I remember asking my Pastor while we were going thru, when will this be over?
At the time it seemed it would never end!
But at last it did end!
Conclusion Yes. There IS Hope!
As a Christian I believe in NEVER giving up! As long as there is a God in heaven, there is someone on my side rooting for me, and YOU!
My best advice is to go and talk to Him, he really does want to hear from you, and it will make you feel a LOT better too!
May God bless you and help you! Please leave a comment below, I would Love to hear from you!
