Some times we think life is quieting down, then we really get dumped on. We get discouraged because we do not see immediate results.
That is when we have to stay calm in our faith and be patient. Our quiet trust in God is so important. God is still at work in our lives and He will get very personal with us if we are willing to trust Him.
Psalms 73:28 But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all Your works.
