Everyone’s going to go through hard times and easy times in life. The question is how will you do in the hard times.
When you’re not under pressure and life is going well, that’s not the times you’re going to struggle with stress, anger, fear, etc. People always do well during the good times. But the time that one’s character is tested, stretched, and built upon is when things are going out of control.When life is crushing you with boulders is the time that you’ll show what kind of person you are.
The only way to have true joy and to be able to get through the valleys is with Christ. People will worship money and power, drown themselves in drugs and alcohol, etc. They want to escape the valleys they’re in. But ultimately none of these will get you through the deepest and darkest valley. Death. Our friends can’t save us. Well, I take that back. There is one friend who can. And that is Christ and the faith we have in him.
Have a good Sunday guys. ^_^ 🙂

Good post! It's funny how life has its ups and downs… and it's all because God loves us and wants the best for us. It's good to turn to good friends for help and guidance, but ultimately, Christ is the only one who can provide the peace that we need.
