be tough

"God answers the heartfelt cries of His people.  He wants you to know and believe that He will deliver you from all trouble.  And even if the trouble remains for a season, He will provide and care for you.  Your responsibility is simply this:  be willing to love and worship God.  Sound too simplistic?  Try it for a week.  Let go of arguing your point of view.  Put aside resentment, self-righteousness, and any pride that have placed enmity between you and others.  Then set the focus of your life and heart on Jesus Christ.  Doing this may be one of the toughest things you have ever done."  ~ Charles Stanley

Take the mindset of our culture that thinks everything should be easy and combine it with the troubles of life in a world that already lives far from the truth found in God's Word.  What a mess! 

The only hope there is can be found in Jesus Christ.  Setting your heart and mind on Him.  And worshipping Him when it is the very last thing you feel like doing.  Truly, the enemy flees when he's in the presence of praises to God.  

Try it.  Be tough.  Worship Him. Watch your heart soften by His peace as you praise in Him the midst of life's storms.
