More often than not, the difficult times drag us down, make us worry, cause our stress levels to hit the roof. Believe it or not, that is when we need to trust God the most. We may think that "I got this", "I'm fine", "Whatever". But, He has plans to take care of everything. We just have to trust Him.
Your car breaks down and you are carrying a huge and heavy backpack, a neighbor stops to give you a ride, and you keep the heavy backpack on the whole time. After dropping you off at your house, he asks, "Why did you keep that on the whole time? Was is not very heavy and a burden? I gave you a ride, you could have put it down."
Something to think about.
Here are some verses to help in difficult times.

We are a regular couple just trying to make a happy and healthy life together. We pray together, workout together, fish, hunt, camp, go on road trips, talk, cry, laugh, live and love our Pepperdog. We will offer advice here, share our stories, and do what we can to help others. We are not perfect. Only God is perfect, always and forever. We just do the best we can to get by day by day. Life is a journey through good and bad times, disappointments and regrets. To have a best friend in your spouse is the best feeling in the world. It is necessary that we keep this friendship alive and safe everyday. Each day is a new day, to love, to live and to make the decision that you will be on the devil's most wanted list. Chin up, with God, all things are possible.
