Remember that God is ALWAYS with you and He's always working in your favor. Even though the situation may seem bleak and you may have given up hope, remember that God is preparing something for you! So just have faith.
A little faith can go a long way. So if you are discouraged and feel lost... just remember who is holding your life-- the LORD. He will look out for you and He is always with you. Any goal you have can be ACHIEVED through Christ!
When you devote yourself to the LORD and have faith that He will help you reach any goal, you WILL succeed! After all, God is an AWESOME and POWERFUL God. Just think of all of the great things He's done in the past. Stand on His promises and believe that He can and will help you through.
If God can defeat Goliath and shut the mouths of lions, what can't He do for you? If you are in a rough place and there seems to be no hope left, remember who you live for. Remember that God is always there for you and that, with a little faith, He can help you ACHIEVE anything. With God you will not fail!
