God Is With You in the Midst of Struggles

I have so much fun talking with you. 

Most afternoons, I share “One Truth” on my radio show as a daily dose of hope and inspiration. Not too long ago, I shared one that said, “Never be afraid or embarrassed to struggle! We’ve all been in a struggle. There is absolutely no shame in working hard to get to where YOU want to be. God loves you so much…receive that!”

While this message is short, it really resonated with me. We all struggle with small things along with big things. It can be health, or finances, work issues, or personal doubt, family, or relationship problems. In my life, I’ve dealt with all these things. In the process of these struggles, I’ve tried to guess how to proceed. I’ve read books, searched online for advice, and tried every solution I could find. Yet, nothing seemed to work.

Faced with this frustration, it’s easy to give up and feel hopeless and discouraged. The right answer is to realize that there is hope in Jesus. Instead of giving up, we need to reach out to Jesus with every ounce of our faith. Have you struggled with countless problems without success? Have you tried “everything” and nothing seems to work? It’s time to cry out to Jesus. Tell Him your needs, frustrations, and problems. Obey His Word and believe that He can meet your needs. In every area of your life, He can give you a new beginning. He loves you!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.” Isaiah 43:2

    Thank you for your wonderful words of encouragement, It gave my heart relief.
    Am a lover of you station.
    Unfortunately, since i moved to Atlantic city, It doesn’t transmit there. So many of us there are hungry for the channel there. Sincerely hope there’s something that will be done.
