There’s nothing we can do but be crushed by the inevitable -or look to the invisible to do the  impossible.  “Apostle Paul testified, “We’ve been surrounded & battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do…”2 Cor. 4:8. “Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.”  Roger Crawford. Yes, everyone is challenged, however, you can chose to remain battered & bitter, or like Hannah, you can chose to pour your bitterness to the invincible God (1Sam1:12).

“Our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change. Martin Luther King Jr. “Be not discouraged! There is a future for you…the resistance encountered now predicated hope…only as we rise…do we encounter opposition.” -Fredrick Douglass.  If all you want is to get well, then careless about the prevailing crises; rather, fix ur gaze on God. Put the failures and disappointments of year 2016 behind you, and look forward to a more fruitful and rewarding 2017. God knows what to do! Stay awake, 2017 is here! You’re winning! Yes, we are winning!
