Our reality is that everyone faces difficult times in life.  The question is how do these times effect us?  Do they cause us to doubt God’s goodness or cause us to waiver in our commitment to Him and His will for our life?  Does our faith in Him allow us to completely trust Him even in hard times? We must stand strong in the face of difficulties and be Resolute in our commitment to Christ.
