During this ten year long journey of mine, I hung to the Bible verse, Romans 8:25. That verse alone, helped gave me strength. "But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance." Those words etched themselves upon my heart and soul and without them, I probably would have fallen. But God gave me strength through those words and because of Him, I rose from the ashes.
God truly is good and He does answer prayers, even though He may not answer them right away, you just got to have patience and keep believing in God and your prayers will be answered.
During my time of struggle, not once did I asked God, 'Why?' I never asked Him, 'Why is this happening? Why can't I find work?' I was always asking God, 'When?' 'When will I find work? When will it be my turn to start living?' Do you know what was God's reply? Just one word, 'Soon.' That one word, 'Soon' was the only answer He gave me. Of course I didn't know how long, all that I know was that I had to put my faith in God and know that soon I would be working.
God heard me and with the start of this new year, He blessed me with a job. God truly is good, all the time.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Romans 8:25 NKJV
