As a contrast to my post "Majoring in Minors", I wanted to point out that there are times we face situations that are just down right.....hard. There is no other way to put it. I wanted to make that clear. Check out this message by the late Pastor David Wilkerson on the Private War of the Saints. My hope is that this would give you hope to press on in the midst of your battles. 1 Corinthians 10:13 Every test that you have experienced is the kind that normally comes to people. But God keeps his promise, and he will not allow you to be tested beyond your power to remain firm; at the time you are put to the test, he will give you the strength to endure it, and so provide you with a way out.
