There is a saying “When life gives you lemons make lemonade” Some of us have made so much lemonade we are starting to think perhaps we should look outside in our backyards to see if there is a lemon tree! However, this statement is teaching us to rely more on ourselves instead of God. Because when we are truly feeling the weight of these trials the word of God gives us this scripture so that we can see the real fruits of our labors…Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. (James 1:12).

May this prayer help to sustain you while you are in this place.

Dear Lord: I love You. Thank You that You are with me as I journey through this life with all its troubles. Please increase my faith as I cling to the promises You give me during my struggles. Be with me, help me, guide me, draw me closer to You. Thank You for the promise that if I stand firm in my faith during the test, that You will reward me with the crown of life. Help me remember each day that You love me, that You are with me, and that I am Your beloved child. In Your name, I pray, Amen.

Prayer by Tiffany Thibault.
